Silent auction to support Costa Rican Service Immersion

Thursday, February 21, 2013 6:00:00 AM

Stritch’s Office of International Education will once again hold its Silent Service Auction to support international student service programs.

Faculty and staff can support students by donating their talents to the auction. In the past, Stritch community members have donated skills in photography, gardening, cooking, and many other creative contributions. Student participants will offer services in babysitting, painting, and yard work.

The auction will be held March 11 -29, and proceeds will benefit this spring’s Costa Rican Service Immersion.

While in Costa Rica, Stritch students will work with the Cloud Forest School in Monteverde. They will spend time with children, work on ecological projects, and learn about environmentally safe and sustainable practices.

Unlike many silent auctions, this Stritch event will be accessible for several weeks. Participants will be able to bid on items in the Student Union from March 11 -29. Even if you cannot donate to the auction, please consider bidding on a service.
