Riverside holds spring sports auction and Troy Case memorial fish fry

Tuesday, April 30, 2013

The 18th annual Riverside Sports Auction following the second annual Troy Case Memorial Fish Fry was held April 23 at the Riverside High School cafeteria.

Riverside Coach Buster Campbell served as auctioneer for the annual spring sports auction.

Auctioneer and Riverside Coach Buster Campbell expressed his appreciation to everyone for their donations, participation, the cooks, and all of the volunteers.

Over 500 enjoyed a fish dinner with all of the trimmings. The fish fry was added to the event last year in memory of long time educator and former Riverside elementary principal Troy Case.

The annual event generates money to support the non-revenue producing sports including baseball, softball, golf, bowling, tennis and track.

A variety of items were auctioned including basketballs from all of the teams singed by the players, chemicals, baked goods, toys, gift certificates, and much more. There was also a silent auction for home baked items including cakes, pies, cookies, and candy.

When each item was sold, the buyer had his/her name placed in a hat for a drawing at the end of the auction. The winner received $50. The winner was Kristy Wilson

It was a fun evening raising money for the kids.
