February 25, 2017
The Windsor High School FFA chapter's annual hired hand and silent auctions will pair food with fundraising at 5 p.m. Wednesday in the Windsor High School Auxiliary Gym, 1100 Main St. in Windsor.
One of the student organization's largest fundraisers, the hired hand auction lets the community bid on students who will perform eight hours of labor for the high bidder, said Windsor FFA member Britney Robertson.
The more than 70 Windsor FFA students up for auction can be bought to help with a number of tasks ranging from farm work to babysitting.
In addition to the hired hand auction, the student organization also runs a silent auction with more than 75 items including baskets designed by area businesses and students with food, art, merchandise and gift cards, she said.
“More than 70 Windsor FFA students up for auction can be bought to help with a number of tasks ranging from farm work to babysitting.
"As the Windsor chapter's biggest event, the hired hand auction has a fun atmosphere and even has a pork barbecue dinner to enjoy while attendees are bidding on items or students," Robertson said.
Meal tickets are sold, for $5 per person, at the door and kids eat for free, according to a news release from Windsor FFA.
The event is open to the public and Robertson invited everyone to come and support the Windsor FFA Chapter or to enjoy a meal with the community and watch the auction.
