The 27th Annual Valley City State University Scholarship Auction will be held April 29 at the Valley City Eagles Club. The theme is “Back to the 80s” and attendees are encouraged to dress in 80s fashion trends. Auction tickets are $60 each, which includes admission, two drink tickets, and a buffet dinner.
“The scholarship auction is the largest scholarship dollar-generating event that the VCSU Foundation office works on each year,” said Kim Hesch, associate director for advancement. “The scholarships are essential to the success of VCSU and all proceeds from the auction go directly to the V-500 and Century Club scholarships.”
Social hour will begin at 5:00 p.m. Last year, the silent auction moved to a virtual format and will once again be available on the Handbid app. The silent auction will start on Monday, April 25 at 10 a.m. and end on Friday, April 29 at 8:30 p.m. The app can be downloaded from the App Store or Google Play Store. After downloading, entrants can follow the prompts to create an account and then choose “VCSU Scholarship Auction 2022” from the list. Users can monitor their winning and losing auctions from the dashboard, receive notifications when they’ve been outbid, and pay in-app at the end of the night. Entrants do not need to be present to win.
The evening will also include popular raffles, the chance to purchase bottles of wine from the Mystery Wine Table and a new game, Spin the Prize Wheel, for a chance to win a variety of gift cards and other promotional items. .
The buffet dinner will be served at 6:00 p.m. with a live auction at 7:00 p.m. This is an opportunity to bid on great items while contributing to scholarships, providing financial relief to prospective and current VCSU students.
Auction items are currently solicited for the event. Anyone wishing to donate an item may contact the VCSU Foundation office. As the event draws closer, a list of silent and live auction items will be available on the VCSU Foundation website at vcsualumni.org and click on the “Auctions” banner.
