The Port Clinton Area Business and Professional Women’s 17th annual scholarship auction will be held Friday, March 9, at the Catawba Island Club. Tickets for the event are now being sold and can be purchased from any BPW member or at Perfect Color Hair and Tan for $30.
Ticket price includes dinner at CIC dinner, entry into the door prize drawing and a paddle for the always lively live auction.
Donations for both silent and live auction items are appreciated from local businesses and individuals alike. Local art, wines and event packages are all always popular auction items. Other great ideas are sporting event tickets, beach glass jewelry and service gift cards.
Funds raised by the BPW Auction and other fundraising events support local projects. Scholarships to adult women and graduating senior girls is the largest part of BPW’s annual giving. Last year, more than $9,000 in scholarships were granted to ladies from Ottawa County to pursue higher education. Ruth Ann’s House and the Magruder ER also benefit from BPW funded projects each year.
As a sponsor of a Riverview Birthday Party, Meet the Candidates Night and A Day For Me, the members of BPW thank you in advance for your donation to keep these projects going.
