DALLAS - The Dallas Booster Club is soliciting donations for its annual fundraising auction, scheduled Saturday, Jan. 26, at the Polk County Fairgrounds.
For a $100 donation, businesses or individuals are designated a "DHS Athletic Supporter." Auction items, such as weekend getaways, catered dinners, gift certificates, quilts and gift baskets, are also needed.
The event begins at 5:30 p.m. with a silent auction. Tickets are $20 per person and include dessert by Cornerstone Confections.
All proceeds go toward reducing participation fees and enhancing all athletic programs at Dallas High School.
Last year's auction raised more than $32,000. Funds were used to reduce student participation fees by $15 per athlete per sport, and an additional $10 per athlete was donated to each athletic program.
