This is the third year for the event that raises money for the football program at Plymouth High School. The auction will be live on WTCA from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Friday.
“Last year we were able to raise $8,000 and we’ve set our goal to raise $10,000 this year,” said Tonda Ellis who is coordinating the auction for the team. “A lot of people have donated some very nice items for us to auction off.”
A trip worth $3000, a copier from Adams-Remco, and tickets for the Crossroads Classic basketball games in Indianapolis, and Holiday World are highlights. Beef O’Brady’s has offered wings for a year, Coca Cola stepped to the plate with Coke for a year and Ask For Flowers will keep your special someone happy with a bouquet of flowers every week for a year.
Ace Driving Academy, Swan Lake and many local restaurants and auto parts stores have contributed items ranging from tools to meals.
“We’re going to have a half hour devoted to items for men, for women and for children,” said Ellis. “We’ll go longer than 2 p.m. if we have to sell everything we have.”
Money from the auction goes to pay for equipment – especially helmets with an increased emphasis on minimizing chances of concussions – meals for the team and the senior trip.
