Judson University Students to Host Silent Auction for University Missions
(Elgin, IL – January 30, 2013) Judson University will host its annual, two-day Silent Auction on February 25 and 26 in the Betty Lindner Commons (1151 N. State St., Elgin.) Funds raised through the silent auction will benefit Judson students as they travel domestically and internationally for their annual service learning projects. The auction, open to the public, welcomes both donors and patrons to participate.
Each year Judson students spend their winter break, spring break, and post-term traveling across the country and around the world to partner with charity organizations. This year, Judson is partnering with organizations like the John M. Perkins Foundation for Racial Reconciliation in Jackson, Miss., the Del Camino Network in Costa Rica and the Dominican Republic, and the Christian Activity Center in East Saint Louis, Mo. Students help these organizations by providing manual labor, childcare, academic tutoring, aid for soup kitchens and homeless shelters, and much more.
All donated items for the Silent Auction must be received by February 18. Each item must have a minimum monetary value of $5, preferably brand new. Those interested in donating an item for bid can email Student Life Director Margaret Street at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The auction will be open for public biding from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on February 25, and from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. on February 26 in the Betty Lindner Commons. Patrons will be asked to sign their name and their bid for the item along with personal contact information in case their bid wins.
