The Mount Holyoke Alumnae Club of Greater South Hadley is sponsoring a Silent Auction for Scholarship Friday, March 30, from 6:30 to 8:30 pm in Willits-Hallowell.
A sampling of some of the items are: weekend getaways in several places in New England; many collectible items, such as Royal Daulton figurines and Wedgewood china; MHC memorabilia; CDs by MHC music faculty and choral groups; prints; paintings; gift certificates from many local vendors; gift baskets; legal services; decorating services; jewelry; and symphony tickets. There will also be door prizes.
The admission fee is $15 if tickets are bought in advance (contact Jeanne Hough) or $20 at the door. Hot and cold hors d'oeuvres will be served to complement a cash bar.
This is the first fundraiser of this type that the club has sponsored. Previously, money for scholarship was raised through a bed-and-breakfast program. Lindsey Whitmore '07 is the current recipient of a $5,000 scholarship that the club has given each year.
