The silent auction happened on Friday the 14 during spartan hour. Students were seen entering the cafeteria and going to various tables to enter that auction. The auction was based on bids. First they had to write their name, then they were to enter their amount of money they wanted to bid. Highest bid received the item.

The event was run by the Student senate and all proceeds went to special olympics. Students began the auction right at 8:30 and they could make their bids until it closed at 9:10. Bids were paid in cash by most students, but the option of venmo was also available if they didn’t have an physical money with them.

Some of the items auctioned off were: sit in comfortable chair during class, homework pass, skip the lunch line, essay extension, park in teachers spot, including Mr. Jurek, and lastly get some banana bread from Mrs. Frie. The highest bidder bought the bread for around $35.

Another item students could buy was a Caribou drink. The option was for the week of the 17th, Monday to Wednesday. There was an unlimited amount of students who could have chosen this option. The drinks were delivered in the morning to the students first hour classroom.

“It was really nice to have the Caribou delivered right to my class and it’s for a great organization,” senior Tyler Olsen said.

The event raised around $1,435 for special olympics.
