33rd Annual MVCTC FFA Charity Auction for Ronald McDonald House scheduled

CLAYTON - The 33rd Annual Miami Valley Career Technology Center FFA Charity Auction for the Ronald McDonald House Charities is scheduled for Dec. 11, from 11:30 a.m. – 2:30 p.m. at MVCTC. The auction, planned by the MVCTC FFA chapter, is made possible by the dedication and hard work of the FFA members, the MVCTC staff, retirees, and the wonderful alumni that return each year to support the great cause.

Retired MVCTC Ag Educator, Waid Lyons, started the event in 1980. The original auction was a hat auction, making $250. Over the last 32 years the MVCTC FFA has raised over $130,000. MVCTC is proud to be the only High School in the Dayton area to make the largest donation from a one-day event to Ronald McDonald House Charities of the Miami Valley Region.

The proceeds from the event go directly to the local Ronald McDonald House on Valley Street in Dayton so that families of hospitalized children have a place to rest, sustain their strength and be better able to support the healing of their child. RMHC is a modern, 14-room house offering all of the comforts of home to the guest families. They are open seven days a week, 24 hours a day, and 365 days a year.
