ARCHIVED: James Bond-Themed SSSF Auction
"Auction is Forever" is the name, and fundraising the game of the 38th annual Students for Student Scholarship Fund (SSSF) auction, to be held on Thursday, March 3, at 7:30 p.m. in Reisinger Concert Hall. Every James Bond film has its tuxedoed casino scene, and this year's scholarship auction is no different.
Tux-clad wannabe Bonds and, of course, slinkily clad would-be Bond girls will help auctioneers—including faculty, staff and students—auction off a wide range of items, among them show and event tickets, time shares, paintings and books, lunch with successful alumnae/i writers, and a sailboat trip and island picnic in Long Island Sound. “The auction represents such a mix of people from all across campus—the whole community gets involved,” says SSSF Chair Alison Keohane '05 about the annual event that raises money for student scholarships. “It's putting your money—and time and energy—where your mouth is.”
The Sarah Lawrence Students for Student Scholarship Fund is one of the oldest student-run fundraisers in the country. This event is free and open to the public. For more information, or to donate items or cash support, please call (914) 395-2575.
