In an unprecedented year, Spanish Fork High School was looking for a way to help support the community while bringing together the clubs and organizations throughout the school.
After a lot of brainstorming the idea of holding a silent auction where trees, Christmas décor and other items would be auctioned off.
Sixteen different clubs and organizations at the school made Christmas trees, wreaths, and quilts in different Christmas themes. The clubs spent time planning and decorating their trees, many with homemade ornaments.
Local businesses, individuals, Miss Spanish Fork, and Miss Utah donated items to be sold. With COVID restrictions, an online auction was thought to be the best method of selling the trees. Two viewing nights were held where the public could come and look at the trees. The auction was a great success bringing in close to $7,000 that will be donated to Operation Underground Railroad.
The event was such a hit with clubs, community, and at the school plans are already in the works to make 2021 a bigger and better event. (Serve Daily submission.)
