Bus 200 students are sponsoring a silent auction and dance to benefit Listening House, a drop-in, day shelter in St. Paul.
The event will be held from 6 to 10 p.m. Sunday, March 12, in Room 304, Murray-Herrick Campus Center.
Tickets are $20 ($10 for students and children) and include hors d’oeuvres, beverages and music by Hot Heads swing band. Tickets can be purchased in Room 201, McNeely Hall, or by calling (651) 962-5025 or e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Auction items include:
- Certificates from restaurants, such as Café Odyssey, Cherokee Sirloin Room and Boca Chica
- Certificates for photo sessions, dance lessons, oil changes and many more services
- Tickets for theaters, St. Paul Saints game, a bed and breakfast and more
- Clothing, artwork and other goods
To offset the costs of this event, students are invited to donate their evening meal Sunday. Each meal translates to a $2 donation to Listening House. Look for sign-up sheets at the cafeteria or e-mail email@example.com to make your donation. The goal is to have 800 meals donated.
