Holiday fair to raise money for scholarships

Rotary Club of Englewood helps local graduates

Posted

The Rotary Club of Englewood has given more than $120,000 in scholarships to Englewood students in the last 10 years. Now a fundraiser will help put more cash into the program.

The family-oriented Englewood Rotary Holiday Fair and Auction is 5 to 7 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 9 at The Guild, a co-working/community space next to the Englewood Civic Center, 3435 S. Inca St. It will feature sales and auction items of collectibles, signed sports memorabilia and fun stuff for kids.

Chief architect of this fundraiser is Rotarian Susan Van Dyke, former mayor of Englewood.

“The fair is a family event that includes items for all ages, free food and beverages, along with collector's bags for the first 100 kids,” Van Dyke said in a news release. “There's a vast array of amazing kids collectibles that will be sold at bargain-basement prices. Plus a silent auction of high-quality and desirable collectibles for adults to bid on.”

The goal is scholarship money.

“What a great way to provide affordable collectibles to kids, while raising money for scholarships for high school students who need a little help,” she said in the release.

Entry tickets are $5 per person or $10 per family. Groups (Scouts, churches, clubs) may be eligible for free tickets. Englewood Rotary wants lots of kids, who can “shop” the affordable ($5, $10, $20) tables of action figures from Disney and Star Wars, comics, coins and stamps.

Items ranging from $21 to $150 will be sold in a silent auction. Signed baseball caps, photographs, and other sports memorabilia —think Olympics, Broncos, Avalanche, Rockies, Nuggets — are in the auction.

All proceeds from the holiday fair will help provide scholarships to colleges or trade schools for graduates of Englewood High School and Colorado's Finest High School of Choice.
