Heritage Christian School in Canton is hosting its Fourth Annual Dinner and Benefit Auction on Saturday, April 21, 2012 from 3 p.m. to 9 p.m. at First Christian Church, 6900 Market Ave. N. in Canton. The auction is Heritage’s biggest fundraiser. Last year, the auction raised more than $30,000 and helped provide an excellent academic Christian education to more than 40 Stark County students who needed tuition assistance.
Some of the unique items offered are job shadowing opportunities with local leaders and law enforcement. This year, North Canton Mayor David J. Held and North Canton Police Chief Stephan B. Wilder each have donated job-shadowing opportunities, as has Canton Mayor William J. Healy II. The winning bidders will receive tours, get personal instruction, and learn about daily responsibilities of the mayor or local law enforcement.
More than $60,000 worth of other beautiful, useful and exciting items are up for silent and live auction, including a variety of vacation packages, local sports tickets and packages, admission or season passes to many area attractions, fine and unique jewelry, numerous autographed sports items, coin and medal collections, tuition for new Heritage students, certificates for adventures like sky-diving, a fishing charter, or a weekend rental of a high-end auto, handcrafted quilts and baby clothes, Amish-made furnishings, a variety of home décor and theme baskets, and much more.
Tickets are $29 each and may be ordered by credit card at (330) 452-8271, or by completing the ticket order form at www.heritagechristianschool.org and mailing payment.
Ticket price includes catered buffet dinner, beverage and dessert, bid number, and entry into a drawing for a $500 cash door prize or a 5-piece luggage set. Must be present to win. Registration begins at 2:30 p.m. for “Early Birds” wishing to register and bid early. Attendees can have
