Niles Adventist School hosting silent auction to raise money for technology

NILES — The Niles Adventist School is hosting its 13th Annual Silent Auction Feb. 11 in order to raise money for education technology.

The event is open to the public and will take place in the school’s gymnasium from 6 to 8 p.m. The event will cost $8 for those who reserve a ticket ahead of time and $10 for walk-ins.

“It’s a great way to support the school and local business,” said Gina Meekma, the secretary at the school. “Just a fun evening to come and enjoy some food and music and see if you can get some good deals.”

This year’s fundraiser will fund the school’s technology needs, helping to provide replacements for broken or outdated computers and projectors.

Appetizers are included with the cost of admission. Live music will be provided by local musician Laura Whidden, who played at last year’s auction. She will perform a mixture of Christian and popular songs.

The silent auction will include items donated from a variety of local businesses. The items include a fly fishing charter, piano lessons, Berrien County Youth Fair adult season passes, jars of local honey, a massage and restaurant gift cards from Prime Table, Papa Vino’s and Silver Beach Pizza.

At the silent auction, pieces of paper will be placed in front of the item to be bid on. Some items will have a minimum bid and others will not. Each person that attends the auction will be assigned a number to keep their bid anonymous.

To make a bid, one simply needs to write their bid amount and number down on the piece of paper in front of their desired item. Toward the end of the event, bidding will cease and the winners will be awarded.

Typically, the event is heavily attended. In order to reserve a ticket call: (269) 683-5444 or visit the school’s website at nilesadventistschool.com.
