VCSU Scholarship Auction 2021
It’s BAAAAACK! The VCSU Scholarship Auction (the most fun all year) will be held May 21, 2021! A few things will look and feel a little different, but the FUN will be the same.
This year we invite you to help us celebrate our 26th Annual VCSU Scholarship Auction - our theme is "Better Together”. The social hour and the silent auction begin at 5:30 pm. A buffet dinner will be served from 6:00 to 7:30 pm, with the live auction starting at 7:00 pm. The evening also features everyone's favorite raffle giveaways, the chance to purchase bottles of wine at the popular Mystery Wine Table along with our live auction.
In order to make the event safer and being able to allow for social distancing, we will be holding the Silent auction virtually this year. On Tuesday, May 18 at 10:00 a.m. our Silent auction will be available to view and for bidding. The virtual Silent auction will end on Friday, May 21 at 8:30 p.m. To view and bid on the items, you will need to download the Handbid App. Through the Handbid App you will be able to monitor your winning & losing bids from the dashboard and receive notifications when you have been outbid. Once the Silent auction ends you will be able to checkout using the Handbid app. Watch for details coming soon on how to access our silent auction.
Tickets to the auction are $60 each and includes admission, two beverage tickets, a full buffet dinner along with a chance to win a 5 - $100 cash prizes (you do not need to be present to win). Tickets are on sale now!
Tickets go quickly, and we have sold out over the past couple of years. Help us do the same this year! Reserve your ticket now by calling the VCSU Foundation Office at 701-845-7203, email firstname.lastname@example.org or contact an auction committee member.
And remember attendees are encouraged to dress in VCSU attire!
The auction is a collaborative effort of the V-500 and Century Club boards.
Thank you for your support of Valley City State University and our annual Scholarship Auction. We hope to see you there!
The 2019 Auction raised over $85,000 in scholarships.
We would ask that you give serious consideration to making a gift to the auction. Popular items include tools, artwork, sporting equipment, outright cash, gift certificates, etc. All auction donors receive recognition in our auction program.
Still not sure what to give - participate in the Mystery Wine Table and donate a bottle of wine valued at $20 or more. The night of the auction the bottles will be boxed and numbered. Attendees can purchase a bottle by paying $20, drawing a number and then will find out what bottle of wine they won!
Should you have any questions, please feel free to call us directly. Should you have an item that you would like to donate, let us know and we would be more than happy to stop by and pick the item up at your convenience.
