Thank you to the Vail Valley community for teaching me how to hold a silent auction in support of a good cause. For their generous donations in support of Cycle for Survival 2013, I'd like to thank Dennis and Kimberley, of Kimberley's Fine Jewelery; Kate Wingard, of Church and State Optics; and Wendy Lew, of Wendy Lew Designs. The Vail Daily and the Vail Valley keep on giving - with much gratitude, Sandie Aveil.
