Knights Ferry Grammar School Foundation and the Knights Ferry Parent/Faculty Club are sponsoring the annual Silent/Live Auction and dinner. This year it will be March 27th. They need donations for the auction. Each class is making something for the live auction. This is the big fundraiser for the school. Last year they raised about $18,000 for software, library books, playground equipment, PE programs, computers, and classroom curriculum support. With the budget crunch, and more crunches coming from the State, this effort is very important to the school children. Tickets are on sale ($35.00) at the school or call Shelli Borba at 848-1507. Also Shelli is the one to contact if you have items for the Silent Auction.
