VHS Held Booster Auction
The Vidalia Athletic Boosters recently paired with Vidalia High School Athletic teams for the 2nd Annual “Vidalia Athletic Auction.” Over 1,500 Indian fans and community supporters gathered in the VHS Cafeteria for a silent auction featuring over 125 items and the VHS Theatre for the Live Auction, which included 13 items.
The participants were treated to homemade sandwiches and snacks by the Vidalia City School Nutrition Department while they perused the silent auction, which featured everything imaginable, including many one-of-akind items. In its second year, the auction is held to help benefit the studentathletes at Vidalia High School. This year’s event, sponsored by DOT Foods, raised over $25,000. There were over 20 other corporate sponsors for the event as well.
VHS Athletic Director and Head Basketball Coach Tommy Dalley said he was overwhelmed by the response, “The auction was a huge success this year. It gave our athletic department a tremendous boost in a very tough year. This is a community event, and it shows the support that this community has for Vidalia Athletics. We are so appreciative of the booster club, volunteers, and our coaches for going above and beyond in order to pull this off.”
