Auction raises money for New Haven charities

Yale Medicine Magazine, 2012 - Winter


The 19th Annual Hunger & Homelessness Auction raised more than $30,000 for New Haven charities in November. Proceeds will benefit New Haven charities.

The auction saw the return of Wade Brubacher, a professional auctioneer from Kansas and father of Jake Brubacher, M.D. ’10. During the four years of his son’s medical education, Brubacher volunteered his services and was invited to return this year. Among the items auctioned were tote bags made from the Bicentennial banners, a faculty vs. students softball game with Dean Robert J. Alpern, M.D., Ensign Professor of Medicine, capoeira lessons, quilts from the classes of 2012 and 2014, a bow tie belonging to anatomy professor William Stewart, Ph.D., knitting lessons, and dinners with faculty members.
