Riverside holds 21st sports auction

Tuesday, May 3, 2016
Going once, twice, three times, sold. Riverside Coach Buster Campbell auctioned off a variety of items at the annual sports auction/dinner.

The 21st Riverside sports auction was held Monday, April 25, at the high school cafeteria in Lake City.

Basketball coach Buster Campbell put on his auctioneer hat as he kept the bidding lively for a variety of items donated to support the annual event.

Guests enjoyed a barbecue dinner at the 2016 dinner/auction with proceeds going to the athletic department and the non-revenue sport activities such as baseball, tennis, golf, track, bowling and softball.

Riverside athletes get to help with the event donating one item each, selling dinner tickets, and working the auction.

Coach Campbell thanked everyone for their support throughout the year.

The athletes, coaches, staff, and fans have all been a part of the event's success year after year.

A signed basketball from the Riverside High School 2015-2016 girls basketball team went for $160. Homemade cakes and cookies went up to $50 with a lot of competitive bidding.

Several tables were filled with baked goods for a silent auction.

Coach Campbell expressed his appreciation to the Booster Club and all they do for the Riverside program.

The dinner is held each year in honor of the late Troy Case, former coach, teacher and principal.

This year it was decided the first $500 from the event will be added to the scholarship given by the Case family each year.
