Donations wanted for “What an experience!” event on February 24

January 18, 2018

“Experience is the teacher of all things.” – Julius Caesar

The Finlandia University Board of Trustees are excited to announce Finlandia University fundraiser “What an Experience!” event on February 24, 2018, that features your donation of an “experience” in a silent auction. All faculty and staff are invited to donate time and talent that provides an experience to the highest bidder. What kind of experience? Pretty much anything you would like to share—knitting lessons, an afternoon of trout fishing, how to make juustoa—are a few examples. The board envisions that not only will the auction item provide a new experience for the successful bidder, but that both the donor and the bidder will gain a new personal connection as an added benefit.

The silent auction will take place at the Jutila Center from 6 to 9:30 p.m. on Saturday, February 24, with music, wine and beer. Donators will receive one free ticket to the event. Tickets for the event are $10 per person or $15 per couple. To donate an experience email your name, contact info (phone and email) and donated experience (50 words or less, as listed in the auction bid sheet) to Denise Vandeville, Dean of the International School of Art & Design,  denise.vandeville@finlandia.edu or Administrative Assistant Lisa Broemer, lisa.broemer@finlandia.edu, by February 2, 2018.

Contact Denise Vandeville with any questions about the event.
