These sessions even continued after the United Cerebral Palsy Association of Central Arizona closed down due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and families had to switch to online therapy.

69th annual Spring Livestock sale online show and auction held virtually amide COVID-19 pandemic
This year, due to the COIVD-19 pandemic, 69th annual Spring Livestock sale online show and auction were held virtually to keep everyone safe.
The event started on April 27 and ended on May 2, and $ 76,630 was raised in the game from the winning bids on more than 130 student submissions. The sale included a range of small and large livestock, arts and crafts, welding, and woodworking projects.
Additional funds were raised from the donations which were directly made to the participating students.
Spring ISD Career and Technical Education Director Cynthia Williams said, "The virtual auction was very successful. If Tri-Club had not used this platform, student projects would not have been sold. All of their time and financial commitments would have been in vain."
According to Spring ISD, many students are dependent on the funds for their projects. Such auctions help them raise those necessary funds and for some graduating seniors as the fee for their post-secondary education and career training goals.
"Our community came together for this, and it was kind of heartwarming," Spring Tri-Club President Courtney Musterman said. "The majority of our big buyers that come out to our actual show did get online, and they still participated the way they normally do, but with it being an online auction we also were able to get some buyers that we've never had before, that haven't come out to our actual in-person auction. So that was kind of neat. It gave some of those people a different way to participate."
