The American Humanics Student Association (AHSA) is hosting its annual Wine and Cheese Silent Auction on Saturday April 4. The event is being held in the David and Valerie Black room of Lakeland College's Laun Center, and it takes place from 6-9 p.m. Tickets for the event can be purchased at the door on the night of the event, and the cost is $25 per person or $35 per Couple.
This year's Wine and Cheese Silent Auction will be the seventh hosted by the American Humanics Student Association. However, for the first time, the annual event will feature a sponsored selection of local wine and local cheese. The wine is being sponsored by Von Stiehl Winery of Algoma, and the cheese is sponsored by Sargento Foods Inc. of Plymouth.
The walls of the event will again be lined with auction tables covered with a wide variety of auction items donated to the organization from many local businesses. The auction items range in values and represent a multitude of interests in order to ensure something for everyone.
The entire event is brought together through the efforts of the American Humanics Student Association, an organization comprised of America's future nonprofit leaders. The majority of the proceeds of the Wine and Cheese Silent Auction funds AHSA's registration at the national American Humanics Management Institute. Attendance at this Institute expands students' knowledge of issues and practices within the nonprofit sector, while also meeting a requirement for the students to earn an educational certification from American Humanics, Inc. in addition to their Lakeland College degree.
Besides the event's profits sustaining exceptional leadership in the nonprofit sector, 10 percent of the profits are donated to provide scholarships to high school students in Malawi, Africa, with the purpose of fostering educational excellence worldwide.
