A silent auction is held annually with 100% of the proceeds going to benefit the Gates Scholarship Fund. Do you have sports or theater tickets you might be able to donate? A vacation home that you could donate a week or weekend stay?? We accept all kinds of donations, big or small! If you are interested in making a monetary donation or donating an item for the auction, contact Beth Mecteau.
Each year, the Gates Scholarship Fund teams up with the Travelers Championship to help raise money for scholarships. By purchasing discounted tickets through “Chip in for Charity”, $10 per ticket sold is donated to the Gates Scholarship Fund. When making a pledge/donation via the “Birdies for Charity” program, 100% of the pledges/donations go directly to the fund and earn an additional bonus of up to 15% (from the Travelers Championship) - that’s FREE money for the Scholarship Fund for your tax-deductible pledge of as little as 2 cents per birdie!!
