The annual President’s Twenty Auction at William Woods University will be held in the late afternoon this year, making it more convenient for the public to attend and bid on the many bargains.
The auction will take place Wednesday, March 24, in the Ivy Room (on the lower level of Tucker Dining Hall). A silent auction will begin at 4 p.m., with a live auction at 5:30 p.m.
The auction will feature items donated by the WWU students, faculty and staff. Items ranging in value from $5 to approximately $200 will include such things as fishing trips, gift baskets, merchandise from the campus Logo Store, gift cards, artwork and event tickets.
Drinks and snacks will be available, and draft beer and wine will be offered for sale. Cash and checks will be accepted for auction items and refreshments.
The auction will raise funds for the renovation of Woody’s, a room adjacent to the Ivy Room. The goal is to transform it into a place where students and staff can gather.
“Students and alumni are excited for this new improvement to our campus community, and President’s Twenty is eager to get this project under way as soon as possible,” said Kathryn Buerhle, a senior member of President’s Twenty from Wentzville, Mo.
President’s Twenty is a collegiate honorary service society whose members serve as official ambassadors of the president at university events. Members serve as the official honor and color guard at all university convocations, commencements and other activities where needed. They also act as liaisons between the university president and the student body, providing an avenue of communication for each.
