Silent Auction

This year's KY AHEAD silent auction theme is "My Area or Hometown is Unique Because..." We would like for you to provide items that are unique to your community or county in Kentucky. It can also be items from where you grew up, or have lived, etc. These would be items that are different from your usual University items (i.e. t-shirts, hats, flags, etc.). KY AHEAD wants to know what is special about your hometown or current location in Kentucky. Let's celebrate our State and all that it has to offer. Don't forget to bring items that will bring the highest bid! All the proceeds go toward the KY AHEAD Scholarship Fund.
