Dating back to Thanksgiving weekend 1948, homecoming at Northwest Nazarene University has had warm and rich traditions showcased in drama, music, athletics and organized class reunions.

One of the longest-running traditions is the auction that gives homecoming attendees the opportunity to directly benefit current NNU students. The live and silent auctions feature a variety of items for all ages, interests and budgets. The silent auction begins Fri., Nov. 6, and ends Sat., Nov. 7 in the Brandt Center lobby, and the live auction will take place Sat., Nov. 7, at 9 a.m, also in the lobby.

Whether you’re a sports fan, an outdoor adventurer or just looking for something to do on the weekend, the auction has plenty of items to bid on. Sports fans can choose between a football signed by Ohio State Buckeyes running back Archie Griffen, and a baseball autographed by Hall of Famer Willie Mays. Those seeking outdoor adventure can bid on a three-day Alaskan salmon fishing trip for two with men’s basketball coach Tim Hills, a one-week vacation home on the Oregon Coast, or a flight for two with Nampa Mayor Tom Dale as your pilot. Other experiences that you can bid on are a dinner for six at President and Mrs. Alexander’s home, two skybox tickets for the BSU v. U of I football game, or an 18-hole golf outing for two with Greg Bullock and President Alexander. Apart from these large items, the auction will feature many more items, from antique science equipment to the all-famous Jo Kincaid pies. The exciting live auction and extensive silent auction gives all participants an opportunity to directly benefit NNU students through scholarship donations.
