Dayton FFA alumni are seeking donations for the 26th Annual FFA Alumni Auction and Dinner on April 2.
The auction is held in the old gym at Dayton, Ore., High School.
“The auction is the largest fundraiser the alumni do,” said Ian Heard, president of the Dayton FFA Alumni. “Proceeds from the auction go toward vocational ag programs that would otherwise go unfunded. In years past, we have been able to help send students to the National FFA convention in November.”
The doors will open at 5 p.m. for registration at DHS. “The silent auction will begin at 5:30 with a staggered closing of the tables starting at 6:30. Every 20 minutes a table will close,” said Heather Oliveria, silent auction chair.
An “agrilicious dinner” will be served at 7 p.m. with the oral auction following at 8 p.m.
Tickets are $10 per person and may be purchased at the door or in advance by calling the Dayton Ag Shop at 864-2080.
Any individual or business that would like to donate an auction item, time, money or services to this year’s auction, call Karen Goddik at 503-560-9275.
