The Oswego Christian Community School’s fifth annual auction will be held Saturday, April 28 from 1 to 4 p.m. at the Oswego Armory, West First Street, Oswego.

The event, which serves as the school’s largest fund-raiser, will feature both a silent auction and a live auction.  Planning Committee Chairperson Sue Bakos said this year’s auction will be better than ever.

“Over the years, our annual auction has received some wonderful support from the community, making the event more and more popular each year,” she said. “We are excited about this year’s event and are looking forward to an afternoon of fun.”

Bakos added that the committee has been busy contacting area business and gathering items for the auctions.

“We are fortunate to have received a number of excellent items already from caring businesses and individuals,” she noted. “We anticipate having a wide array of items for our auctions and are gladly accepting donations from anyone interested in supporting our auction fund-raiser.”

Some of the many items that will be up for auction include: Disney World Park Hopper Passes; gift cards to area retailers and restaurants; gift certificates for spa treatments, hotel getaways, and automotive services; jewelry and beauty products and more.

Bakos said that a complete list of auction items, which is available on the school’s website, and its Facebook page, is being updated daily as new items are added.

A silent auction that will take place from 1 to 2:30 p.m. will be followed by a live auction, featuring auctioneer Jim Deacons, from 2:30 to 4 p.m.

The event will also include the Oswego Community Christian School’s annual prize drawing.  For a donation, individuals will have the opportunity to win one of three prizes, including a grand prize of either a five-night Disney World vacation for a family of four or a $1,000 VISA Gift Card. Second prize will be an Apple iPad 2 while the third prize will be a $250 gas or grocery card.

All proceeds from this event will be used for the continued improvement of the quality of education offered to the students at the school.
