Silent Auction Results
By Nancy Del Duca
The Pinewood Players Scholarship Program was the beneficiary of a silent auction on June 24, 2017. Several tables of auction items were set up at the back of the general meeting. Donated items ranged from the practical to the unexpected. In true auction style, the bidding accelerated as friendly competition was generated. All of the donated items were sold to happy new owners with the final call of “two minutes remaining to get your final bids in” upping the bidders’ determination. A down comforter sold for $45.00 while pasta party ingredients netted $30.00. With very little effort, close to $450.00 was raised for the scholarships to be awarded in 2018. The general meeting was not disrupted, bidders were happy and the scholarship fund has its’ first donation which will build as the year goes on.
Information on the highly successful Pinewood Players Scholarship program is on the PWP website. Tax deductible donations are earmarked for the support of Munds Park related college students who are pursuing careers in the many fields of the performing arts. Please take a look at the scholarship program and the four grateful recipients. The silent auction may well return at the general meeting in June of 2018. Bidders: sharped your pencils!
