Silent Auction Nov. 5

The CHS Annual Silent Auction will be Tuesday, November 5, from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. in the 127 CTW (Commons).  Each year, we choose a community service activity that will benefit from the funds raised through this fun-filled event. As of now, we are in the process of choosing one and will inform you of our decision as soon as possible. 

Please consider making an in-kind donation to our auction. All items are welcome and much appreciated. Items can include, but are not limited to, gift baskets, gift certificates, home decor, etc. For example, if you are a chef and would like to teach three to four people how to prepare a particular dish or a wine connoisseur and would like to have a wine tasting at your house, these services can be donated. We ask that donated items and services be submitted by Friday, November 1 to either Kathy Schuler-Ringo in CTW 204 or to Margo Ubele in CTW 433.   

In addition, we will also raise money through our Harvest Breakfast held prior to the auction from 8:00 to 9:00 a.m. All faculty and staff are welcome! If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Margo Ubele at
