About 75 tickets were sold, down slightly from last year, but an active crowd filled the dining room at the Clearwater/Wells Gray KOA for the event.

Besides the silent auction items, the array of desserts was fantastic and those in attendance tried their best to sample a bit of everything, organizers report.
