Whether you’re a sports nut or a travel queen, you can bet on finding a real bargain at the Shorter College Alumni Auction this Saturday.
As part of the college’s 2008 homecoming celebration, a silent auction has been planned at Barron Stadium during the 2:30 p.m. game that pits the Hawks against the Faulkner Eagles.
More than 20 items are up for bid this weekend, including an “I love New York” travel excursion, a mountain getaway in Ellijay, a weekend family stay in Chattanooga and a large selection of sports-related memorabilia.
The auction will be located underneath the bleachers, near the concessions, and winners will be announced between game quarters.
