Auction Raises Funds for Scholarships

Nearly 300 alumni, faculty, staff and students turned out for the Fall Auction, which this year was combined with the Medicine Mixer reception and class reunion recognition, and raised $24,520. The auction featured both live and silent bidding on a variety of high quality and unique items donated to raise funds for student scholarships. Several of the items were donated in memory of the late Dr. Jack Fessler, professor emeritus of large animal surgery, who passed away in April. Among those items was a customized t-shirt featuring a number of classic "Fessler sayings." Auction volunteer and PVM retiree Harry Latshaw wore the shirt at the start of the event, and the highest bid of nearly $3,000 came from a member of the 25th reunion class. A special thank you is in order for the following Veterinary Companies and Greater Lafayette and Midwest business for their support of the 2011 Fall Auction:
