Rocksolid’s annual fundraiser sold out, silent and live auction items needed

Monday, February 27th, 2017


Rocksolid Community Teen Center has had an overwhelming response to their upcoming auction. Tickets have sold out for the Mar. 11 event at the Battle Ground Community Center. “We wish we could have more attend, but we are at maximum capacity,” says Marcy Sprecher, executive director.

Individuals and businesses may still support the program by donating goods or services to the auction. The team is still gathering live and silent items. There is always a need for transportation sponsors at a $500 donation. These funds cover the expenses of the two vans picking up teens at the local schools and for field trips, etc.

With this sponsorship, a business gets their logo on the van and on Rocksolid’s website with a link to their business for one year. For more information and to donate, call 360-885-2181. Details about the event can be found on Facebook, here.
