Items ranging from jewelry, USI apparel, artwork, crafts and even lunch with Dr. Rochon will be up for bid with all proceeds donated to AA&A Scholarships. The USI community as well as the general public can bid on auction items.

Winners will be notified November 11, and the pick-up and pay day is scheduled for November 16 in Health Professions 2068.
“We are really excited the Scholarship Auction is returning this year. You can see all the wonderful items online—bid high, bid often,” Kimberly Sullivan, Administrative Assistant and Associates President and Advising Associate for the College of Nursing and Health Professions, says. “We appreciate the support of the USI community in our fundraising efforts to make a financial difference in students’ lives.”
AA&A reminds individuals although all proceeds go to scholarships, no portion of the winning bid will be tax deductible.
