Benefit auction a big success
On Friday, March 14th, the parents and students of Cherry Valley Elementary hosted our 2nd Camp Orkila auction. Each year, the fifth grade class at Cherry Valley attends the five-day outdoor education camp at Camp Orkila. The funds raised from the auction provide tuition scholarships for those students in need of financial help. Because of the generous donations received from businesses, community members, parents and students we were able to raise $7,200, ensuring that all fifth graders will be able to attend camp.
We would like to extend a special thank you to Stan Chapman, our auctioneer, who donated his time and expertise, and whose presence is always appreciated. And thank you to all the community members who joined us Friday night.
