LEWISBURG, Pa. — The Bucknell Brigade will host its second annual raffle and silent auction Friday, Feb. 25, from 7 to 9 p.m. in Larison Dining Hall at Bucknell University. Entertainment will be provided by Billy Kelly of Earl Pickens and Family.
All proceeds will be used to fund a permanent health clinic that the Brigade has established in the community of Nueva Vida, Nicaragua.
Prizes include but are not limited to PSU football tickets, a weekend bed and breakfast stay in Eagles Mere, tickets to the Pittsburgh Zoo, admissions to the Camelback Mountain Resort, passes for Reptiland, rounds of golf at the Bucknell Golf Course, tickets for the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra, and passes for the International Spy Museum in Washington, D.C.
Tickets are $5 for students and $10 for general admission and will be sold at the door or at the Office of Civic Engagement, located in the Bertrand Library at Bucknell.
The Bucknell Brigade was formed in 1999, when a group of volunteers spent their spring break providing emergency relief efforts following the devastation of Hurricane Mitch. Since then, volunteers involved in this student-initiated service-learning project help raise money for the free health clinic in Nueva Vida, outside the capital city of Managua.
