The 22nd annual Valley City State University Scholarship Auction—with the theme “VCSU Viking Heroes Unite”—will be held Friday, April 15, at the Valley City Eagles Club. The auction committee has been working hard at planning a fun night that will bring out the hero in us all.
VCSU Scholarship Auction 2016
“The scholarship auction is the single biggest event in terms of generating scholarship dollars that the VCSU Foundation Office works on each year,” said Kim Hesch, assistant director of advancement at VCSU. “Scholarships are vital to VCSU’s success, and all proceeds from the auction go directly to V-500 and Century Club scholarships.” The Scholarship Auction is a collaborative effort of the VCSU Booster Board and V-500 Board. All proceeds from the event are split 50/50.
Tickets to the auction are $40 each, which includes admission, two beverage tickets, a full buffet dinner and five chances to win $100 (need not to be present to win).
A social hour and silent auction will begin at 5 p.m. During this time participants are encouraged to check out the large variety of gift baskets and other items available and place silent bids.
The buffet dinner will be served from 6–7:30 p.m.
The live auction will kick off at 7 p.m. This is your chance to bid on some great deals while contributing to an outstanding cause. All proceeds from the auction go directly to scholarships. Items up for bid include a 55” Curve TV, a stand-up paddle board, an electric fireplace, Broilmaster grill, restaurant certificates, hotel stays, golf and much more.

“This spring semester we had another record enrollment and scholarships play a major role in attracting students to Valley City State,” said Hesch. “We’re confident that with the support of our community we will be able to reach the goal of raising $80,000 in scholarship dollars this year.”
