Bay club to host auction

ESCANABA – For the third holiday season in a row, the Bay College TRiO club will hold the “Silent Night Auction” now through Dec. 6. Local artists, businesses, and organizations are invited to donate their goods, services, time, and talents for auction to help benefit the student organization, one of the largest and most active at Bay College.

The public auction takes place in the TRiO Office, 826, in the Learning Resources Center wing at Bay from 8 a.m. – 5 p.m. Mondays through Thursdays, with the bids closing at 12 p.m. on Dec. 6. Goods will be distributed and paid for the following week.

The auctioning of items will help offset the costs of the annual TRiO Club trip in the Spring of 2014. TRiO Club is a social, cultural, academic, and service-oriented student organization dedicated to fostering community among first generation, low-income and disabled college students of all ages at Bay College. This trip will be a unique cultural and service opportunity for the club.

TRiO Club is an offshoot of the TRiO program at Bay College. TRiO is a federal grant-funded, non-profit Student Support Services program whose mission is to help students who are underrepresented in higher education persist and obtain an associate’s degree by providing them support, guidance, and opportunities.
