Silent Auction: November 5, 2016

Hickory Grove Christian School has attempted to make it a practice to limit the number of fundraisers that we attempt each year. There are typically two major events each year and one of those coming up next month. The HGCS Dinner and Auction will be held on Saturday, November 5 in the Family Life Center. The auction Preview begins at 5 pm and Dinner/Program at 6 pm. Our speaker is fellow believer and Major League Baseball player, James McCann, catcher for the Detroit Tigers. James has generously waived his speaker’s fee for the evening. He was a standout both academically and athletically at the University of Arkansas and even though he is in his early twenties, he has an amazing life story that I feel certain that you will enjoy hearing.

Would you consider joining us Saturday, November 5? You can help in three ways:
  1. Purchasing individual tickets or a table of eight. Then, invite your friends and family to a wonderful evening while supporting Hickory Grove Christian School (for those purchasing a table of eight, you will be listed as a Table Sponsor on the program)
  2. Helping promote the event on your Facebook page or in conversation with your friends and family
  3. Donating to the class gift baskets (click here to view your child’s grade basket theme http://hgcsannouncement.blogspot.com/2016/10/announcements-for-week-of-october-3-2016.html )

There are a total of 300 tickets available so let’s fill the gym for James and for HGCS. Tickets go fast for this event so you will want to get your tickets early!

Here are a few of the 120 great auction items that will be available:
  • Myrtle Beach condo for a Weekend Getaway
  • Palace Theater Christmas; Show tickets which include a $25 dinner certificate and 2-night stay at Grand Atlantic Resort in Myrtle Beach
  • Tickets to sporting events (includes Hornets)
  • “Experiences” such as a student taking on the role of “Headmaster for the Day”
  • Amazing Grace mountain cabin
  • Autographed James McCann jersey
  • Class Gift Card Baskets,
  • pottery, jewelry, art, handcrafted items and much more!

You can follow the event on Facebook at HGCS Dinner and Auction so you can keep up to date on what is happening and see a listing of all prizes.

Once again, thank you so much for your help throughout the year. Without your help, many of the projects that we have on the horizon are nearly impossible. We sincerely appreciate any help that you can provide, especially with the Silent Auction!
