Auction to fund new building project

The 23rd year of the annual campus auction will be held on March 18 in the FC gymnasium from 5- 9 P.M. This year, all money raised will go towards new books and will help fund the new building project.

The auction provides an opportunity for parents and people in the Valley to experience the community of Fresno Christian.

?I love the auction every year,? Tim Wilkins, superintendent, said. ?What I like most is the way it brings the FC family together with a common purpose.?

The night will feature a dinner, silent auction and live auction. Donated items vary from gift certificates to sporting goods and vacation packages. One of the featured trips this year is a London theatre package including a five-night stay in a London Marriot hotel and 4 tickets to shows.

“This year we hope to bring in around $100,000,” Wilkins said. “The money will be put toward books and hopefully to begin construction on our new building.”

With the blue prints already in hand and development plans well under way, the only delay in the building project is the money required for a down payment.

?If we had unlimited funds, we could start construction tomorrow and be done by next year,? Wilkins said. ?But we are slowly raising the finances needed.?

Every year students also offer their time to help run the auction.

?I love student involvement, and the guests love it too,? Wilkins said. ?The help from alumni and students is the key to a successful auction.?

The auction encourages student participation by offering an opportunity to complete their required five hours of community service.

?I?m working at the auction because I?ll get full community service hours,? Kally Batesole, ?09, said. ?Plus I will be with friends so it will be fun.?

Those students volunteering at the auction will welcome guests, sell raffle tickets and help close the silent auction tables.

For ticket reservations or donations, call 299-1695, ext. 100 or visit the school’s website at www.fresnochristian.com for more information.
