We are extremely excited about the annual auction to benefit the Bob Shilling Memorial Scholarship.
The scholarship, awarded each year to a deserving journalism or communications student, is named after Shilling, who died in 2016. He was a 42-year member of our board, and a veteran broadcaster who was passionate about the scholarship he chaired for many years.
This year’s silent auction will be held Friday, June 2, during the ever-popular Crab Feast at the Hotel in Ocean City, Md. Items donated by your station or company will be auctioned off to the highest bidder in attendance. Any high-ticket items will be carried over to live bidding during the Awards Show on Saturday night. All money collected goes to fund the $3000 scholarship.
We are especially interested in items and gift cards we can transfer electronically. Trips, vacation home stays, spa days, balloon rides, concert tickets, sporting events, electronics, museum passes, restaurant gift and gas cards are just a few ideas.
So please check with your business partners and promotion staff for items to help us fund a worthy student and future broadcaster’s education. It's good PR for your station and it benefits a great cause.
If you can donate an item (or three), please contact Alex Fruin. The deadline for contributions is May 15, 2023.
Donations may be sent c/o Alex to the following address:
Thank you for your generosity!
