The 17th Annual VCHS Jaguar Auction will be held on Saturday, April 25 at the VCHS Gymnasium at 31322 Cole Grade Rd. Doors open at 6 p.m.

The Valley Center High School (VCHS) Foundation, along with its many helpers, are preparing for the annual tradition of opening the VCHS Gym to the public for Valley Center’s largest fundraiser.

Tables are brought in, then filled with silent auction items like gift baskets, gift certificates, jewelry, home items, tickets for theater performances, sporting events, theme-parks and more. Bigger items are on the floor. In the past live auction items have included party packages, asphalt driveways, photo booth rentals, advertising, attorney services, condo rentals and whitewater rafting trips. Bidders have a variety of choices.

More tables are brought in for seating, so you can take a break from bidding and enjoy the complementary appetizers, desserts and drinks. A stage is created for the MC and auctioneer who provide lively commentary and keep the auction moving.

The VCHS Foundation is a nonprofit supporting the high school’s many clubs, teams, organizations and activities. Club volunteers have been hard at work soliciting for auction items for over a month.

Pre-Sale tickets are available now for $10. They will be $15 at the door. Each ticket gets you admission, appetizers, desserts, beverages, and enters you into the drawing for a flat-screen TV. Most Valley Center High School students sell tickets for their sport or club or you can stop by the high school office or the VC Chamber of Commerce for tickets. You can also reserve a table for the evening for a $100 donation, contact Colleen at 760-855-2510.

Save time and come to the VCHS Gym on Saturday morning from 9 a.m. to noon to get your bidder’s card before the evening event, maximizing your shopping time.
