Bridges to College is auctioning spectacular prizes – including Ohio State University game tickets, Indianapolis Colts tickets, a full family membership to the Darke County YMCA and more!

“People have donated some fantastic items for our auction this year,” said Beth Sears, executive director of Bridges to College. “Bidding on these items is a great way to support Bridges to College.”

The auction will be held at the end of the Second Annual Karlh McCallister Memorial Golf Outing on Saturday, June 25, at the Greenville Golf Course. Proceeds from the outing benefit Bridges to College, formerly known as the Darke County College Access Program.

Bridges to College helps students go to college by offering educational programs, one-on-one mentoring and scholarships. More information about Bridges to College can be found at its website:

Items that will be auctioned at the Golf Outing include four OSU game tickets vs. Indiana; two Colts tickets vs. Jacksonville (spectacular seats) with an overnight stay at the Marriott in Indianapolis; an Electrolux wine cooler; four Bengals pre-season tickets; a full family membership to the Darke County YMCA.

“The auction will cap off a fun day of golf,” said Mike Barker, organizer for this year’s outing.

The golf outing begins at 1 p.m. and is expected to wrap up around 6 p.m. with an optional cook-out, raffle drawing and auction.

Raffle tickets are now on sale, and people do not need to be present to win.

Some of the raffle prizes are a Frigidaire wine cooler, KitchenAid mixer, four Cincinnati Reds tickets, Samsung Blu-Ray DVD players, gift certificates to CJ High Marks and The Inn at Versailles, rounds of golf from Stillwater Valley Golf Course, White Springs Golf Course, and the Greenville Golf Course, and more.

Raffle tickets are $5 each, 3 for $10 or seven for $20. Winners will be drawn after the golf outing on June 25. A person does not need to be present to win.

Tickets may be purchased in advance from any Bridges to College board member or at Hansbarger Home Solutions in Greenville. Our board members selling tickets include Bill LaFramboise, Ryan Cox, Diane Swallow, Kevin Blakeley, Aaron Cox, Marlise McCallister, Chris Mortensen, Chris Seger, Marc Saluk, Brian Swiger, and Rhonda Williams.
