Virtual Knight of Honor Rising Star Auction
April 3rd-April 10th
***Due to the ongoing COVID-19 restrictions currently in place, we have made the decision to move our Gala event to an online auction again this year.
The Merchant Association’s 10th annual Knight of Honor Rising Star Fundraiser will once again be a virtual, online event to be held April 3rd-10th.
The purpose of this fundraiser is to honor two North Andover High School Seniors with $2,000 Rising Star Scholarships, and a third $2,000 Sylvie Foulds Scholarship, to a graduating senior (from any town/pursuing any degree) who is a child of Merchant owned business or an employee of the Merchant member business. The Sylvie Foulds Scholarship is a benefit available exclusively to Merchant member businesses. One application is allowed per business and at the discretion of the business owner. To date, this fundraiser has resulted in scholarship awards totaling in excess of $36,000.
The fundraiser will include an on-line silent auction featuring items donated by local businesses as well as several raffle prizes, including our popular wine raffle. Milestone Anniversary awards will be presented to member business owners celebrating a 5, 10, 15, etc. year anniversary.
New this year will be recognition of Covid-19 Heroes who made an impact in our Community. We felt we could not single out a Merchant of the Year for 2020 but could recognize the many business owners who provided information and support to our community in dealing with Covid-19 restrictions and challenges.
All forms are available below. The first is an online form that has sections for ALL of the options (sponsorship, auction donation, wine donation, heroes nomination and milestones). The other forms are all printable forms that can be mailed to us.
Any questions can be sent to Gala@northandovermerchants.org.
