UPH Auction Photos

Thursday, March 16th, 2006 · No Comments

Tuesday night was the culmination of all the hard work that the Saratoga Steeplechasers put in to the planning of the Universal Preservation Hall Fundraiser auction. The auction was a huge success, raising more than $20,000 for UPH and giving more than 150 people a chance to see the work to date on the building. It was an amazing, fun, and uplifting evening. So many people — the band, Garland the emcee, the “day in the life of” auctionees, the food and liquor donors, photographer Niki Rossi — deserve a huge thank you. So on behalf of the Steeplechasers, thank you all for such an incredible evening!

You can view photos from the A_nderson camera here (and a select two below):


Party people Niki, Seth, Gabe, and Jen


A few Steeplechasers: Betsy, Alsya, and Gabe

The true photographic brilliance of the evening, of course, came from Niki, who created this online photo jam that highlights the evening. A select few photos from Niki (I’ll later provide the link where you can order prints):

It was one year ago today when I first wrote about UPH, following last year’s auction (and before the Steeplechasers came into existence).
