These and dozens of other goods--a handmade bowl--and services--car detailing-- are up for bid during the Time & Talent Auction. Tuesday and Wednesday, April 16 and 17, in Main Place and online, TNT hooks you up with a great list of goodies--a basket of fresh summer veggies, bling (gaudy jewelry,) a custom gourmet lunch for two--while helping our students.
Created to help fund scholarships, TNT also showcases the unique talents and abilities of people on campus and in our community. Many people have talents that are not obvious to the naked eye. Since 2009, talented bakers, crafters, embroiderers, mechanics, and others willing to teach their techniques or donate some of their customized products have helped make this event possible. The TnT Auction has raised more than $8,000 for alumni-sponsored scholarships.
