Today in Staunton ... Grace Christian School Boots & Bandana auction & BBQ
It's time for the Grace Christian School Boots & Bandana benefit auction, an annual fundraiser held each spring and supported by not just the school but the surrounding community. This year it will be held on Saturday, April 27, 2013, with over 600 goods and services to be auctioned off to the highest bidder.
Sorry, little buckaroos ... got to be at least 18 years old for admittance.
A favorite event year after year, the proceeds from the auction benefit the school while providing bargains for those who bid on donated items. Mix in some lively bluegrass music provided this year by FlattBroke, a silent auction, fellowship with friends, and a BBQ supper followed by the live auction that runs into the night, and you have the makings for an entertaining day.
Hundreds of folks attend every year. Located in the Grace Christian Activities Center located at 1218 Middlebrook Road in Staunton, registration begins at 3:00. Cost is $20 per person (18 and older) and that buys a ticket into the event, a program, and BBQ supper. The silent auction will open at that time for browsing and bidding.
Beginning at 4:00 and every 15 minutes until 5:00, silent auction tables will be shut down. At 5:00 they begin serving the BBQ with all the fixings while entertainment is provided by FlattBroke.
At 6:00 the Live Auction starts ... and that's when the fun begins. Be ready with your bidding skills ... there are some sharp shoppers ready to bid you down on an item they have their eye on! Don't leave early ... door prizes are drawn before the live auction and you have to be there to win.
Come on out to the auction and be prepared to have a good time catching up with friends while supporting a good cause. See you at the auction!
