The Dan Carlat Memorial Scholarship Fund Auction is coming up January 20 at the Occidental Saloon in Buffalo. Aaron Palmer has the story.
Co-organizer Lynn Young said the musicians at the Thursday night Occidental Jam started the scholarship fund.
The scholarship is awarded to a local student that will go on to study music in college, Young said. The auction will begin at 6 pm on the 25th, and Young said it will be a good time for a good cause.
Tax-deductible donations are still being accepted by the organization through January 13 to give them a chance to process them and get them on display for the auction.
Any purchase at the auction beyond the value of the item is tax-deductible as well.
Larry Brannian will be the auctioneer and there will be both a live and a silent auction.
Young said last year's auction raised nearly $12,000 and they were able to give a $1,500 scholarship to Tyler Schank, who is majoring in music at Northwest College in Powell.
Tyler and some of his musical friends will perform at 6 pm before this Thursday's Occidental Jam. Young said both events will be a lot of fun.
