SUBMITTED BY ROTARY CLUB
How can stamps and coins and signed sports memorabilia help send kids to college? They can when they’re for sale at the Englewood Rotary Holiday Fair and Auction. This Rotary Club has a track record of scholarship awards totaling more than $120,000 to Englewood students who need its support..
The family-oriented Fair is Saturday, Nov. 9, from 5 to 7 p.m., at The Guild, a co-working/community space next to the Englewood Civic Center, 3435 S. Inca St., Englewood.
The fair will feature sales and auction items of collectibles like stamps and coins, signed sports memorabilia, and fun stuff for kids.
Chief architect of this fundraiser is Rotarian Susan Van Dyke, former mayor of Englewood. “The fair is a family event that includes items for all ages, free food and beverages, along with collector’s bags for the first 100 kids,” Van Dyke says.
“There’s a vast array of amazing kids collectibles that will be sold at bargain-basement prices. Plus a silent auction of high-quality and desirable collectibles for adults to bid on.”
The goal is scholarship money, Van Dyke says, “What a great way to provide affordable collectibles to kids, while raising money for scholarships for high school students who need a little help.”
Entry tickets are $5 per person or $10 per family. Groups (Scouts, churches, clubs) may be eligible for free tickets. Englewood Rotary wants lots of kids, who can “shop” the very affordable ($5, $10, $20) tables of action figures from Disney and Star Wars; comics, coins and stamps.
Items ranging from $21 to $150 will be sold in a silent auction. Signed baseball caps, photographs, and other sports memorabilia – think Olympics, Broncos, Avalanche, Rockies, Nuggets – are in the auction.
All proceeds from the holiday fair will help provide scholarships to colleges or trade schools for graduates of Englewood High School and Colorado’s Finest High School of Choice.
