(West Plains) – Over $27,000 was raised during Missouri State University-West Plains’ 19th annual auction, which was held April 5 at the West Plains Opera House.

Sponsored by Café 37, more than 200 people attended the “Be True to Your School” rock ‘n’ roll-themed event, which included silent and live auctions and a meal. One of the featured items on the block that evening was a Vahan diamond bracelet donated by Carter’s Jewel Chest in Mountain Home, AR, which brought in $2,450.

Proceeds from the auction will be used to support and enhance property growth within the university’s master footprint, with a portion of the proceeds also will be donated to the Tuttle Amphitheater Building Project and renovation and updating of the Garnett Library.

Also among the items offered for sale at the auction were those donated by university departments and offices as part of a departmental contest. For the fourth consecutive year, the student services division won the “Highest Dollar Amount Raised” award. The four commemorative basketballs donated by the division garnered a total of $675.

The history department won the “Top Auction Booster” award, which is a per capita award. The submission offered by the two people in that department brought in $109, with the total amount raised by all department donations was $1,348.

Organizers have set the 2014 annual auction date for April 11 at the West Plains Opera House and the fundraising goal at $30,000. The theme of the 20th annual auction will be “Mad Hat” and will give those planning to attend the opportunity to wear any type of hat they want, whether it’s silly, fun, or beautiful.
