Dress up in your 1940's/WWII era outfit and join us as we party for a good cause! The OSC presents the 22nd Annual Scholarship Auction on March 4th, starting at 5pm. The Elk Lodge in Mountain Home is proud to host our military community as we auction off thousands of dollars in donations! (We'll be sharing previews of donations to be auction on our facebook page!)
Everyone is invited to this event: all ranks, civilians, and our mountain home community. We've worked hard to keep ticket prices as low as possible to accommodate everyone and will be serving dinner with multiple meal options at 5pm. When tickets become available, the link will be posted here. Ticket sales end Feb. 18th, as we need to provide the final food count at that time.
The silent auction starts at 5:30pm and we'll be mobile bidding using an online format. If you see a basket you like, bid using your phone! You'll be notified when you've been outbid and you can bid again. As always, we'll close the silent auction by tables, a few sections at a time. This will alleviate any hassle of last-minute bidding AND checkout will be instantaneous- no more check-out lines! (Even if you aren't tech savvy, registration and bidding will be no problem!)
The live auction will start immediately following our guest speaker and will be hosted by our favorite auctioneer, Jack. This is where the big-ticket items are auctioned off and the bidding wars get interesting. So make sure to grab your drinks at the cash bar before settling in for the live bidding.
Lastly, we wanted to remind everyone that 100% of the proceeds from our auction will be tallied up and given away to military dependents (both high school seniors and spouses) in scholarships for college. We offer 4 scholarship types and last year awarded $51,100 to 24 dependents to use for tuition and books. Help us make college affordable for our community of military families and join us at the auction!
