Benefit Dinner Auction Raises $58,000

Headbands, parachute pants and neon attire highlighted the night as Valley Lutheran held its 14th annual Benefit Auction and Dinner at The Conference Center at Apple Mountain on Saturday, February 25.

The theme for the evening was “Back to the ’80s” and most of the crowd came dressed for the occasion. They had the opportunity to bid on a rad assortment of silent auction items, try their hand at some gnarly Atari video games and interactive trivia, sip on specialty ’80s drinks and capture the fun in the photo booth.

Valley students entertained the crowd with music, dinner was served and event coordinator Beth (Lambert) Kaul shared a slideshow of yearbook photos and stories of students and faculty from the early 1980s that had the crowd wanting more.

Dr. John Brandt channeled his inner coaching style, giving the audience a pep talk, complete with mullet and drawing up a game plan on the whiteboard, discussing how important Valley’s supporters are to making the school successful. The night then wrapped up with a live auction.

All in all, $58,000 was raised to support the student aid fund and provide the tools necessary to continue the excellence with which Valley educates the next generation of Christian leaders.

Included in the total was $15,800, which will be used toward refinishing the gymnasium floor, which was installed in 1995 to replace the original carpet flooring.

While the floor has been cleaned an refinished about a dozen times, the process planned for this summer will include a complete resurfacing -- sanding the floor down to the bare wood, repainting the court and re-polishing it.
