The annual Bedichek-Orman Auction, which raises money to fund professional development for faculty members at HCC, is only a couple of months away. All the items in the auction are donated by faculty members and we are in need of donations for this year’s auction. Items that typically do well include art, jewelry, themed baskets, and exciting adventures and experiences. However, all donations are more than welcome! We are hoping to make 2012 our most successful year thus far, so please think about items you have that you could donate for use (like time at your vacation home or on your boat), look in closets and attics and garages for treasures in your home, purchase an item to donate, ask local businesses that you frequent to donate, or partner with your department or discipline to put together a donation. Details about the auction as well as donation guidelines and the donation form are available here on the website by using the navigation links on the right side of the page.
