Shiloh Holds Skyhawktion | VideoKristin Clouston | 11/16/2012
Parents, teachers, students and even grandparents are busy setting up for Shiloh`s biggest fundraiser.
"It started in just a teeny tiny hotel conference room and we`ve expanded into this whole gym area and we use every nook and corner at the gym. It`s just gone from a few thousand dollar fundraiser up to about $190,000 - $200,000," said auction chairperson Tovey Wonnenberg.
It`s the 15th annual "Skyhawktion." Each class puts a basket together and hopes theirs will get the highest bid.
"Christmas was coming soon so we just decided to do countdown to Christmas," said fifth grader Mercedes Reed.
"Countdown to Christmas is just taking stuff from summer, fall and winter so you count down to Christmas," said fifth grader Alli Jordan.
The nostalgic Kindergarteners quilt usually comes out on top but plenty of people already seem to have their eye on the Crayola package. It`s so big, they decided to actually split into two.
"We have a dove hunt from Cordova, Argentina. The Dove hunt for four. So that`s something new and exciting that we have never had before," Wonnenberg said.
There are more than 900 items to bid on. You`ll want to get there early for the silent auction, that starts at 4:00 and the live auction kicks off at 6:30.
This year they also have a fishing ice house and a Christmas light helicopter tour.
