Photo Details

Auction followed the dinner at the fiesta of the Holy Ghost. Santa Clara, California. Rather than distributing food to the needy of the community during the fiesta of the Holy Ghost, proceeds from the auction are used for this work. It is not unusual for a single egg or lemon to sell at auction for one dollar
