Silent Auction 2015

Silent Auction 2015

Thursday and Friday last week I was happy to volunteer toward the sales event off our silent auction. We have 3 consecutive years under our belt and hopefully great improvements as we continue on. All proceeds earned from this auction go to grant 4 high school students with scholarships. I love promoting continued education. This scholarship program selects 4 individual seniors from our high school, to receive monies for their college of choice.

Silent Auction 2015
We had over 130 items placed out to bid for and ran two raffles also. Our chairman for this event was so organized so all bidders could bid an ominously. At the close of our 24 hour auction bids were collected, some bidders had multiple items they won so those were tallied and distributed upon payment.  Everyone was able to attend and we had several attendees from our local community take advantage for this event.

2015 Silent Auction items displayed.


So many items to choose from.  I was outbid for the items I wanted. We had families bid on such nice prices like tickets to the Grand Rapids Symphony, Grand Rapids Whitecaps Baseball game, tickets for a boat ride out to Mackinaw Island, a year supply of juice was donated and won from the Old Orchard's generous gift. Also several local restaurants gave 'family of 4' meal gifts. Another big hit was school supplies, household appliances, automobile items, and tools.  I am so thankful to the companies and individuals who donated to this worthy cause. 
THANK YOU
Connie
