Since 1992, the MSRA Scholarship Foundation has awarded hundreds of scholarships to promote secondary education of MSRA members and their children. The scholarships are funded by donations from the MSRA, private individuals, vendors and fundraising events held throughout the year. The primary fundraising event is the Silent Auction and Garage Sale held at MSRA’s “Back to the 50’s Weekend”.

If you are interested in donating an item to the Silent Auction or if you are donating a garage sale item or wish to make a cash donation to the Scholarship Foundation, please stop by the Scholarship tent on Friday or Saturday. All donations are tax deductible, and you will receive a donation receipt.

Bidding for the silent auction items will begin at 9AM and close at 4 PM. All winning bidders must pick up their items by 4:30 P.M. the day of the auction. Stop by to check out the variety of items available for auction and sale at the Scholarship Tent and help make this a very successful year.

Whether our young adults are pursuing a four year degree or a program at a technical college, secondary education can have many challenges. The MSRA Scholarship Foundation was established to support students efforts and show them we CARE!

Enjoy this special weekend!
