Foundation to auction Mystery Boxes 4.29.09

What might be inside one of the four Mystery Boxes at the Morenci Education Foundation auction?

Most anything, says foundation president Bill Van Valkenburg.

Mystery Boxes are located at Johnson’s Hardware, Mike’s Pharmacy, Morenci Deli and Lightning Quick, each one ready to accept donations.

“We’re asking people to put in contributions of cash, gift certificates, lottery tickets—whatever they would like that is in good taste,” Van Valkenburg said.

The boxes will be among the items sold at the foundation’s annual dinner and auction May 9 at the high school. All profits from the auction will help Morenci graduates with college costs.

“We’re hoping people will be generous since all profit goes into our scholarship fund,” Van Valkenburg said.

A list of auction items will be included in an advertisement in next week’s Observer.
