Silent auctions seem so civilized, do they not? Who needs yelling and wild movements to place your bid? In a perfect world, the only thing you need to bid for something you want is your arm, a paddle, and an almost-reckless “I don’t care” attitude.

Well, if you want to support Sparks High athletes and bid for some nice prizes, the tenth annual Quarter Auction hosted by Sparks High School is just around the corner. Come Saturday April 2, the bidding will begin and the City of Sparks Recreational Center will become the center of it all.

A spaghetti dinner buffet will begin at 6:30 p.m. and the live auction begins at 7 p.m. The silent auction begins at 6 p.m.

Sparks High athletic administrator and event chairman Charles Walsh is looking forward to this community-favorite event. He expects around 300 people to show up for the auction.

“It’s been going on for the past 10 years,” he said. “This is the primary fundraiser for our athletic department and it has grown to be pretty popular with the public.”

Admission and dinner is $15 per person and there is a $40 buy-in for anyone who is interested in the silent auction. The prizes will range from gift cards to DVDs, among other things. Each of these only costs the winning bidder a quarter.

It’s probably a good thing the auction will be indoors. Otherwise, Mother Nature might force officials to postpone this event as well, along with most of the baseball and softball games, and track and field events this past week.

To donate prizes, buy your tickets for the event or ask any questions, contact Walsh at (775) 353-5550.
