While fans at the January 28th Scotland County versus Marion County varsity basketball games will obviously be Tigers and Mustang fans, the SCR-I school district is hoping there will be plenty of Kansas City Chiefs and St. Louis Cardinals fans on hand as well.
Superintendent Ryan Bergeson recently announced that the high school will host a silent auction for a series of sports memorabilia items donated to the school foundation by former SCR-I instructor and school board member Sam Berkowitz.
The items will include five separate framed collections of sports cards, featuring a pair of St. Louis Cardinals displays, each with 20 different baseball cards of past and current Cardinals greats, along with pair of displays of Kansas City Chiefs, past and present, in addition to a fifth display featuring young stars in the NFL quarterback ranks.
Berkowitz, an avid sports card collector, has donated the five pieces from his personal collection.
The items will be made available through a silent auction, with guests being able to place bids throughout the evening’s basketball contests.
Bergeson indicated that proceeds from the fundraiser will go towards the district’s match on the recent grant to construct a new all-weather track. Information will also be available at the game regarding the district’s paver sales fundraiser for personalized bricks to line walkway and entrance to the proposed facility.
