The Auction: You bid everyone wins - August 22 & 23


Posted: July 8, 2014

The Shoals Scholar Dollars Foundation will host its 2nd Auction Fundraiser at the Florence-Lauderdale Coliseum on Friday and Saturday, August 22 and 23, 2014. Dinner will begin at 5 pm and the auction will start at 6 and go until 10 pm.

Shoals Scholar Dollars is in the midst of raising funds to provide two-year scholarships to Northwest-Shoals Community College for all qualifying students graduating from the 17 Colbert and Lauderdale County high schools beginning in 2014.

The Auction will be the most important opportunity for the community to raise money for this extraordinary educational initiative.

In addition to requesting corporate sponsorships for The Auction, Shoals Scholar Dollars is asking businesses and community groups to donate items and services valued at $75 or more for the live auction, as well as a variety of other items and services for the silent auction.

If you are willing to make an investment in the education of our young people by donating an auction item, please contact the Shoals Scholar Dollars office at 256-246-2907 or

Items can be brought to the Shoals Chamber of Commerce, 20 Hightower Place, Florence, or to H. W. Hobart Electric, 444 S. Walnut Street, Florence, or they can be picked up by volunteers no later than Wednesday, August 14.

As the donations come in, the names of donors will be acknowledged on the Shoals Scholar Dollars website and Face book page.

Thank you for your leadership and your support in this workforce development endeavor for the Shoals.
