Ivy Tech Peru callout — Fundraiser for Student Success auction items needed

PERU, Ind. — Ivy Tech Community College Kokomo Region’s Peru Instructional Site will host its annual Fundraiser for Student Success on Saturday, Oct. 20 at 5:30 p.m. inside the Psi Iota Xi Auditorium. “Another Opening, Another Show: Who Dunnit? A Murder Mystery,” will include dinner, a silent auction, and feature a murder mystery style performance. At this time the college is procuring items from the community for the fundraiser auction.

Past auctions have included items that vary widely, from a Vera Bradley Metropolitan design laptop carrier and a pair of Coach sunglasses to sporting event and theatre tickets. In addition to physical items, the college is accepting donated “experiences” — e.g., a ride in a classic bi-plane or a ride in a supercar. Last year an “experience” that was included was the winning bidder’s choice of a ride in a Ford GT40, Corvette Z06, or Dodge Viper convertible. Vacation stays are also a possible donation. “Last year the Kokomo campus fundraiser included a stay in a timeshare in beautiful Denver, Colo.,” said Cynde Lees, co-chair for the auction acquisition team. “We hope someone will come forward with something similar as it was hugely popular for Kokomo.”

“The addition of the various ‘experiences’ to the auction really adds to the excitement,” stated Theresa Murphy, executive director of the Peru instructional site. “We’d love to go above and beyond last year in terms of the items that we have available for bidding, so we encourage the community to please consider donating an item or experience to this year’s auction.”
