Angels Camp, CA — Charity is alive and well in Calaveras County.
A little over one hundred and thirty thousand dollars was raised for local charities at the Calaveras County Chamber of Commerce Frog Gala Saturday.
The 28 Painted Frogs of Calaveras 2005 brought over 500 people to the dinner auction at the county fairgrounds in Angels Camp.
The three top selling frogs went for $11,000,$15,000 and $27,000.
The oversized ceramic frogs were sponsored by local businesses. Artists decorated the frogs with a chosen theme and charities were selected to receive the profits from the frog´s auction.
Chamber officials are pleased with the results and said the turn out made for a great evening.
