CDS accepting donations for Annual Silent Auction

Fall is here and that means it is time to start thinking SILENT AUCTION!  Our auction this year will be on Tuesday, October 28 from 10:00 a.m. – 2 p.m.   Our auction this year is limited to just one day so be sure to come up to the Stephens Room that day before 2:00 to place your bid.  All proceeds go to the Career Development Services Emergency Fund which directly helps our students who may run into a situation during the semester that would otherwise keep them from succeeding in their classes.  In past years we have helped with meals, books, school supplies, warm clothing, car repairs, health tests required for some of our programs and even laptops from Computer Banc.  As always, we cannot do this event without your generous donations so bring in anything you have never used, have no use for or are just plain tired of using!  Bring your donations to Career Development Services anytime.  See you on the 28th!
