Friday kickoff event, auction to aid GHS football, cheer teams

Monday, July 30, 2012

The Greencastle High School football and cheer programs will host a Kickoff Party and silent auction event on Friday, Aug. 3, beginning at 6 p.m. at the Dixie Chopper Business Center.

Guests will enjoy an evening of music by Digital Sounds DJ, snacks, a cash bar, door prizes, dancing and a chance to bid on silent auction items.

Everyone in the community, ages 21 and older, is invited to attend. Tickets for the evening event are $5 each at the door.

Misti Scott, event coordinator, shared that this is the second year for the fundraiser, and the coaches plan to make it as an annual occasion.

"One-hundred percent of the proceeds from the event go to support the Greencastle High School football program and the cheer program," Scott said.

The money raised is used to purchase training and safety equipment, and team apparel for practices and games, Scott added.

To date, more than 50 items are on the roster for the silent auction, including Major League baseball tickets, a weekend getaway package and a flat-screen television.

The silent auction begins at 6 p.m. with bidding closing at 9.

Opportunities are still available for business owners to donate items to the silent auction.
