People will have their chance to bid during live and silent auctions at the “God Bless America”-themed Tri-Cities Unity Auction on Saturday, Nov. 10. It will take place at the Spring Lake Country Club, 17496 N. Fruitport Road.
The event will begin at 6 p.m. with a dinner before the auctions begin. Tickets are available at St. Mary’s Parish School and cost $50 per person.
Proceeds from the event will benefit St. Patrick’s Catholic Church and St. Mary’s Parish School.
St. Mary’s Parish School Principal Mike Devitt said the auction items come from Tri-Cities businesses and community members.
Devitt said the auction not only brings the Catholic community together, but it also helps the school with a significant amount of funding. He said the money goes toward the school's operating budget and provides tuition scholarships.
“It’s an important deal for us,” he said.
