About our Silent Auction
Our Silent Auction will help raise funds for our annual scholarships, awarded to local individuals to help pay for higher education expenses. One award is merit-based, the other is need-based. The scholarships are named in honor of two long standing members of BPW (Dr. Frazier still attends our meetings). The two $1,000 scholarships are awarded to applicants that have applied and are enrolled in or matriculating to NC colleges/universities. The scholarship winners will be announced at our April meeting.
Please help us reach our goal of awarding two $1,000 scholarships by contributing or placing a bid on one of our items. The Silent Auction is cash and carry that evening. We can accept cash, checks, and credit cards. Learn more about our scholarships here.
