HCS Auction, Saturday, March 4, 2017
The Hudsonville Christian School community is looking forward with great anticipation to our annual auction fundraiser to be held at the elementary school on March 4, 2017. At the HCS Auction we celebrate God’s goodness to our families and community through Christian education. We thank God for His provisions through generous donors, volunteers, and bidders within our community.

If you have any questions, please contact one of our auction committee members listed below.

Your 2017 Hudsonville Christian School Auction Committee:
Chair:  Ben Scholten, 915-8327, ben@hcsauction.com
Committee Members: Katie Fischer, Amy Flietstra, Steve Herweyer, Darrell Heuker, Rachel Landstra, Kristin Meldrim, Jack VanderPloeg, Dan VanderVeen and Mike Wigger.

Who Benefits?
The money earned at the auction directly supports Christian education via the HCS Parents Club. The Parents Club distributes it to many different things including field trip expenses, grade-level expenses (4th grade Moolah, 5th grade devotionals and Grace walk, 7th grade Winter Camp, 8th grade retreat and graduation Bibles), church rentals, MS uniforms, MS exploratory expenses, resource room expenses, teacher wish lists (items that better enable teachers to enhance student learning), library fund, and tuition stabilization.  Each year we raise approximately $50,000 at this one event!

Please Pray With Us!
Please join the 2017 auction committee in prayer for this evening. May God be glorified during this night of fellowship within the HCS community and of fundraising for Christian education. Pray for the community businesses and individuals who will donate to the auction. Pray as well for the HCS families and friends who will come to bid and buy.

From the Auction Committee:
Do you have something you would like to make as a tax deductible donation to the HCS Auction this year that will leave a lasting impact on HCS?  Do you have a connection with a company that would be willing to make a donation?  Do you know a sports figure that plays or works for a team that would be willing to doante some items?  We are always looking for donations for the auction.  Please call Ben Scholten at 616-915-8327 to arrange pick up.

Family Donations:

The HCS community is looking forward to our annual auction fundraiser on March 4, 2017. Last year’s Auction raised over $50,000 for classroom supplies, teacher support, tuition assistance, technology equipment and funding for extra-curricular activities for our students. We thank God for His provisions through generous donors, volunteers, and bidders within our community. We have already started work on this year’s auction. Our theme this year is “Follow the One Way”.

The auction committee is inviting you and your extended families to support this fundraiser in a couple ways. First, you can donate items for us to auction off! Here are some ideas:

  • Hand-crafted items (wooden, woven, or otherwise) or homemade food items (baked goods, jams, salsas, soups, meats).
  • Stays – for a weekend, a week or more! – in a camper, cottage, or vacation condo.
  • Guided trips (hunting, fishing, boating/sailing) or tickets to a sporting event or recreational activity.
  • Anything YOU would like to bid on! Be creative!
  • We need your most fabulous creations – desserts or cakes – for our “Decadent Desserts” table!

Second, you can support the Auction simply by donating money (checks can be made out to ‘Hudsonville Christian School Auction’). Many of you represent businesses that don’t have products or services that would be easily donated. Cash gifts from you or your business help offset our Auction event expenses. If you give financial support you will be listed as a Sponsor in our Auction Booklet. This can be a great way to get your business’ name out there!

If you have any questions about donating, please contact Ben Scholten – Ben@hcsauction.com or (616) 915-8327. Donations can be sent to (or dropped off) Hudsonville Christian School, 3435 Oak Street, Hudsonville, MI 49426, c/o Auction Committee.  All donations must be in by January 20, 2017.
