4th Annual Chinese Auction

Saturday, March 5, Ballroom, 6 p.m.

In past years, this event has been a huge success, and this year will be even bigger and better. You’ll be sure to have a blast! Please join us on Saturday, March 5, at 6 p.m. in the ballroom. Bring your quarters (approx. $10 to $20) and get ready to have some fun! Each attendee will receive one numbered bidding sign. A bucket will be placed at the center of each table, and a gong will be placed on the stage. The items up for auction will be priced at 25 cents, 50 cents, or 75 cents. Each person who is interested in bidding on the item will be asked to place the requested amount into the bucket (25 cents, 50 cents, or 75 cents). The “auctioneer” will call out bidding sign numbers. The last number called when the gong sounds will be the winner! Sound confusing? You may just have to see it to believe it, but you’ll have a great time! We’ll have a wide variety of items up for auction. Each attendee is required to bring one new, unused item for auction ($15 minimum) as the entry fee. All proceeds from this event will go into the Social Budget for future activities. Full cash bar, pre-packaged snacks only. Doors open at 5:30 p.m.
