Published: Wednesday, Jan. 16, 2013 9:53 a.m. CDT

The Sandwich Education Foundation auction dance will be held March 2 at the Fox Valley Older Adult Center. Doors open at 6:30 p.m.

A cash bar will be offered from 7 to 8 p.m., followed by a light supper/appetizer buffet as attendees get a chance to bid on silent auction items and browse through the live auction offerings.

Items of interest include a football signed by the Northern Illinois University Huskies Orange Bowl football team along with other Huskies memorabilia, a baseball autographed by White Sox player Harold Baines, and the coveted middle school and high school graduation seats and high school student parking spots.

The live auction will begin at 8:30 p.m. with auctioneer Chris Wegener. The evening will finish with dancing to a variety of music spun by DJ Dave Kurtz.

Tickets, which cost $25 each, can be purchased from any SEF trustee or at Bob Wright’s new State Farm Insurance office on Route 34 in Sandwich.

Anyone wishing to further support SEF’s fundraising for the Sandwich schools can donate auction items or purchase advertising through SEF President Dorothy Wilgus at 630-303-4978.
