Downtown Cushing’s second annual Piccadilly auction was attended by upwards of 100 folks on Saturday night including a lucky contingency of Bank of Cushing employees who seemed to exercise a great degree of skill (or luck) during the event.
Located at the Cushing-Drumright Elk’s Lodge the tables were outfitted in a garden theme decoration with loaded water guns included for a whimsical effect. When those seated at the Bank of Cushing table seemed to garner more than their fair share of the bounty, certain of those individuals were heavily targeted with water pistols throughout the evening.
Board members were in full swing for this year’s Piccadilly. Sue McQuillen was in charge of cooking the meal, Debbie Moody, Kelly Dilley, Bobby Farley, Brenda Magdeburg and Peggy Fowler gathered merchandise and sold tickets, Judy Goddard procured the food, Ardell Greenwood worked as assistant to the banker, Lynda Cummings worked the floor while husband Tom (Main Street volunteer of the year) served as photographer for the evening.
Sean Kelly served as emcee and Patrick Krittenbrink served as banker.
Other volunteers were: Carol Arwen, Cindy Dean, Jerri Lawson, Autumn Fotch, Amanda McQuillen, Mila Myers, Richard Dodrill, Nancy Mitchell, Lauri and Jason Hazelton, Tammy and Dillon Wasson, Linda Farley, John McQuillen, Misty Crouse- McQuillen, Mandy Alexander, Beth Dutton, and Ronda Perkins.
Merchandise was contributed by businesses from Cushing, Stillwater, Stroud and Drumright.
Nearly four thousand dollars was raised for the Downtown Cushing Main Street program whose mission is the revitalization of Downtown Cushing.
