Grace Christian Boots and Bandana auction today
Today is perfect to don your your boots, tie a bandana around your neck, and head out for a fun evening with friends and neighbors for the 12th annual Boots & Bandana Benefit Auction at Grace Christian School in Staunton.
A favorite year after year, the proceeds benefit the school while providing bargains for those who bid on donated items. Mix in some lively bluegrass music, 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 event.
Hundreds of folks attend every year. Located in the Grace Christian Activities Center on Middlebrook Road, registration begins at 3:00. Cost is $15 per person (18 and older) which buys you a ticket into the event and BBQ supper. The silent auction will open at that time for browsing and bidding.
Beginning at 4:00 and for every 15 minutes until 5:00, silent auction tables will be shut down; i.e., 4:00 signals the end of bidding for the RED tables, 4:15 WHITE tables, 4:30 BLUE tables, 4:45 GREEN & ART tables, 5:00 YELLOW tables which contain the Super Silent Items.
At 5:00 they begin serving the BBQ supper with entertainment provided by a local blue grass band.
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.
