Student club to hold hospitality silent auction in Heritage Hall

February 27, 2014

University of Wisconsin-Stout students in the Club Managers Association of America believe they have a deal for you.

CMAA Spring Silent Auction posterFrom 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday, March 4, in the second-floor lobby of Heritage Hall, the organization will hold its Spring Silent Auction. Students in the chapter, from the School of Hospitality Leadership, have tapped many resources to develop a varied list of auction items.

Heritage Hall is at 415 10th Ave. E. Parking is free in UW-Stout lots after 4 p.m.

The items include local and Twin Cities-area restaurant gift certificates and dinner packages; golf packages to well-known Wisconsin and Minnesota courses such as Erin Hills, Grand Geneva Resort and TPC Twin Cities; and packages to major hotels and resorts, along with other merchandise.

The auction, which will have more than 60 items, is open to the public. Bidders must sign a bid sheet. Values of the items will be listed, along with starting bids and bid increments.

"You'll have to be sure to check back after you bid because others are likely to bid on items that have such great deals," said Colin Roche, of Grafton, CMAA student chapter president.

The club uses proceeds from the auction to help pay for student trips to conferences and other events. The chapter recently returned from the CMAA national conference in Orlando, where it received a Club of the Future Award.

Students in the CMAA chapter are majoring in programs in the School of Hospitality Leadership. Learn more here.
