2017 Dr. Bill Jones Scholarship Raffle and Silent Auction Starts Today

The Dr. Bill Jones Raffle and Silent Auction is the main source of income for our GFCC Scholarship Fund. Before school began in August, the classroom teachers chose the classroom theme for their basket. Parents were then asked to donate or solicit donations from local merchants. Baskets were created and a list of its contents and a value of the basket was determined.

Baskets will be displayed from

Sunday, November 5 to

Wednesday, November 15.

1. Silent Auction -- The two (2) highest valued baskets are on the first table in the entrance to GFCC. Bid sheets are next to the basket with a minimum bid posted. You are welcome to write in your bid for the basket. Check back frequently or call the GFCC office to see if you have been overbid. You can then decide if you want to raise your bid.

2. Raffle Tickets -- The remaining baskets, along with other classroom venue options, have Raffle Cans in which you place your raffle tickets.

There are some classroom venue options available for ticket cost that are also popular.

  • Lunch with Mrs. Duncan

  • Popsicles on the Playground

  • Carpool Fast Pass

Monday and Tuesday, November 13 and 14 -- There will be No Carpool in the morning or afternoon. This will give you a chance to look over the baskets and classroom venue options and make those final bids and purchases

Wednesday, November 15 at 10:00 am -- Raffle ticket tubs and Bid Sheets will be collected and winning tickets will be drawn. Winners will be notified within 24 hours.

In any drawing, there is a possibility that one individual may possibly win multiple times. Chances increase with the number of tickets purchased and the number of tickets stacked into a favorite basket. The rest is left up to "chance" ... or ... "a luck of the draw." We will cap a family's ability to win more than two baskets or venues.
