Iron River School auction raises over $22,000

The Iron River School auction was extremely successful this year and has raised over $22,000.

For the past 65 years, Iron River School has always held its fundraising silent auction in conjunction with its Christmas concert.

This year, the coffers are full at Iron River School thanks to the community the auction closed raising $22,879.

Parents involved with the Parent Council Association would like to say thank you to everyone who donated.

“We would like to humbly thank our local business and community members,” the Parent Council Association told Lakeland Connect. “We have been amazed by the warmth and generosity that has been shown by each company and individual who openhandedly donated to our auction.”

Alisha Kunec is the Vice President of the Parent Council Association for Iron River School.

“We would also like to thank the individuals who graciously chose to support the school by being a part of our online auction and joined in the excitement of the bidding wars, winning bid or not,” Kunec told Lakeland Connect. “We’ve been blown away by the success of this year’s auction. The funds raised will make a huge difference and go towards our continuous effort to replace our dated playground and meet the needs of the students and school.”

None of this would be possible without the amazing support of the students and school, Kunec added.
