From the GBA Facebook page:

The Graham Business Association (GBA) is hosting our annual scholarship auction on Friday, March 10, 2023, at 6 p.m.! We are excited to be back in person at our largest and most popular event of the year as it helps to fund scholarships through our local affiliate BEST Dollars For Scholars. Funds that are raised through the auction, selected graduates of the Bethel School District will receive a $1,000 scholarship for higher education expenses. Within the last few years, over $40,000 has been donated from the GBA, funding 40 scholarships of $1,000 each to local students.

Would you or your business consider our BETHEL FULL CIRCLE program? Purchase a Gift Card from a local restaurant or service. Donate the gift card to our auction. Auction proceeds donated to BEST Dollars For Scholars. Scholarships are then given to Bethel School District graduates. Full circle. Previous donations have included VIP admission tickets, travel experience to Aruba, local Pacific Northwest hotels, golf packages, Yeti cooler, house cleaning services, landscaping, camping gear, gift certificates, baskets of goods, flight experience…the sky is the limit!
