The Indian Hills Foundation once again raised money for its students during its 37th annual auction.
Items including vehicles, computers, plants, and household goods were auctioned off to provide scholarships for students.
Indian Hills donated items it no longer uses such as computers and many staff members and area businesses also donated various items to the cause.
The amount of money raised for scholarships varies from year to year.
â??We can raise anywhere from $20 to maybe $35,000 so that makes a huge difference, but we do use them for our general fund scholarships which are $600 awards, so we can easily have 50 or more scholarships come from this fund,â?? said Rhonda Conrad, the Executive Director of the Indian Hills Foundation.
The event usually sees a large outpouring of support from the community with several hundred people in attendance.
