"Testing 1-2-3-4...Can you hear us way in the back? We will be ready to go in just a bit.”

A short pause and then: 

“Ladies and gentlemen - Welcome to the 31st Geneva Cancer Auction.”

The voice of Duane “Whitey” Hagen began the annual event.

“We thank Barb and Jack (Kuckenbecker) for 7 years of helping us host the Geneva Cancer Auctions,” Whitey began, which brought up a big round of applause. “And we look forward to many years ahead with Greg and Chelsea (Hanson), the new owners of the Geneva Bar and Grill.  We also offer up a big thank you to the Geneva Cancer Auction crew for all they have done and continue to do to help find a cure for cancer. God bless you all."
