The Distinguished Educators Award Dinner is a major event hosted annually by the Friends. Each year, the Friends select distinguished educators who made significant contributions in the community and are honored at the event. The expanding list of these outstanding honorees attest to the excellence and high level of commitment amongst educators in the community. The proceeds raised that evening will help provide scholarship awards for students and professional development for faculty.
During the Distinguished Educators Award Dinner a silent auction is held. The silent auction is a fun way to raise money for CCOE student scholarships. Items for sale are displayed on tables around the room. Each item has a bid sheet that informs the bidder the value of the item, the item’s opening bid and how each bid must be increased for subsequent bidders.
Bidders should write down their names, their table numbers, and the amount of their bid. This gives everyone a chance to tour the items available for auction and decide which items they wish to bid on without disrupting the program on stage.
The winner will be the last bidder (with the highest bid) when the closing of the silent auction is announced. Winners should visit the cashiers table to pay for their items before they take them home.
We would like to invite you to support our Silent Auction by donating merchandise, gift cards, or services to be auctioned off please complete the attached form. In addition to having your merchandise or services on display for bidding, your name and/or the name of your company will be listed as a donor in our event program. The proceeds raised that evening will help provide scholarship awards for students and professional development funds for faculty.
