Auction Raises Over $15,000 for Scholarships

Spring Auction Scholarship Fundraiser a Success!
Auction Raises Over $15,000 for Scholarships

The beautiful Egan Library was the place to be on April 1 when UAS Alumni & Friends held their annual scholarship fundraiser, the Spring Auction & Dinner.  Fun was had by all as the night proceeded with a live auction, silent auction and dessert auction. Over $11,500 was brought in by auction sales, and an additional $3,870 was donated directly to the Alumni Scholarship Fund, bringing the total fund impact to over $15,375.  The UASAA scholarship committee will be deciding this month as to how many scholarships to give in the next academic year, and how much each scholarship will be.  Last year seven students each received $2,000 for their education at UAS from the Alumni Association. Donations to the fund are accepted year-round. Contact the UAS Development Office on the web or at 796-6566 to see what you can do to help students achieve their goals!  A big thank you to everyone who donated, volunteered, attended and purchased at the auction! You have made a difference in students’ lives. We’ll see you again next year!!
