This our biggest fundraiser of the year and the most important. Money raised at the auction will be used to fund this year’s scholarship recipient. The scholarship is given to a deserving Kentwood Resident Senior to help with higher education costs. There have been some terrific items to bid on in past auctions. Some of the items were as follows: wine baskets, gift certificates, gourmet candies, fine jewelry, etc.
