Oregon State Fairgrounds
Title Sponsor: Cherry City Metals | Scrap Metal Recycling
Silver Sponsor: The Springs Living | Senior & Assisted Living
For a small private school with just over 150 middle and high school stents our annual auction is everything except small! With over 800 people in attendance and more than 450 items in the live and silent auctions, over $100,000 is raised to support Western’s mission to Equip students for lives of faith and learning every year. The auction reflects the community that Western has built over the years. Many who attended for the first time are impressed by the organization, size, and atmosphere that they encounter at the State Fairgrounds.
For many people this auction is so much more than just an event to place some bids and go home. It is an opportunity to reconnect with family, classmates, teachers, mentors, coaches, and friends! We want you to show up on May 7th and feel like it is a place you belong and want to be. The theme we chose this year, “Back Where We Belong,” is to remind us of our past, the great history of the auction, the many students it has helped; but most importantly, it is to remind us to continue to look to God as we remember his faithfulness and blessings over the years. We look forward to seeing you on auction day and believe you will enjoy all the great fellowship, food, and auction items!
Each year a special project is chosen for auction bidders to give directly to. This is one of our favorite things to watch year after year as we are blown away by the generous hearts of those in attendance and we are reminded of God’s incredible faithfulness.
2018 Project: We had so many awesome projects to choose from this year that we decided to propose you with three! The first $3,000 raised will go towards a new playground structure for our incoming k-5th grade students. The next $5,500 will provide new seating in our library, the current chairs are very well loved and worn. The next $2,500 will make all of our previous choir directors jealous. The current chairs our musicians use are just ordinary chairs that happen to be quite old and in poor condition. These funds would allow the music department to purchase chairs that help maintain proper posture!
