2017 Design on Life Recap

Posted on March 16th, 2017

We would like to thank the generosity of our sponsors, auction donors and guests for helping to make the 2017 Design on Life Auction a success.

The Monte Carlo Night on Saturday, February 25 2017,  at Ceruti’s Diamond Room raised more than $50,000 to help local people touched by cancer.


The evening was filled with wonderful music by Dan Heath and Paradise Duo.

Nearly 100 items were auctioned off.

There was a lively group of participants for Design on Life’s new card game. Emcee Krista Miller, Fort Wayne’s NBC 33, drew cards from the deck, eliminating participants one by one until one lucky winner took home a bundle of gift cards valued at more than $500.

The highlight was the live auction with auctioneers from Ness Bros. Real Estate and Auction Co.

We are so grateful to our sponsors: Kroger, Parkview, Steel Dynamics, Comcast Spotlight, Umi Grill, Bobcat of Fort Wayne, Ness Bros. Real Estate and Auction Co., Vera Bradley, Club Soda, Windows, Doors and More, Petroleum Traders Corporation, Just Sue Graphics, Brotherhood Mutual, Vanroot Growers, Woodforest National Bank, All Occasion Party, Sweetwater, Media 401, Parrot Press, Hylant, Belmont Beverage, JBG Photography, Best-One Tire and Auto Care, Accu-Label, Michael’s Floor Covering, Unified Wealth and Retirement  and First Federal Bank.

And a special thank you to Karen Tejera and the Fort Wayne Home & Garden Show for providing complimentary tickets to our guests and partnering with Cancer Services to continue the success of Design on Life for 14 years.
