On Saturday, May 27, at
the Lyceum Banquet, the Office of Institutional Advancement presented a
fantastic Silent Auction in which all banquet attendees could participate.
Items ranged from chiropractic art and equipment to hand-knitted purses and
dinner gift certificates. Three hand-carved chainsaw bears, donated for the
auction by Sherman Assistant Professor Perry Rush D.C., and a mirrored revolving
disco ball brought several bids and raised eyebrows.
Final bids were placed and the bidding tables closed at approximately 9 p.m. The
auction raised an nearly $7,000 to be used for the purchase of new equipment in
the college’s on-campus Chiropractic Health Center.
“Everyone had a great time at the auction, and I know the new health center
equipment will be greatly appreciated,” said Director of Development Anje
Hawkins. “I am glad to be part of making this happen.”
