Evangel University Auxiliary invites community to annual colossal sale

April 13, 2012 | Paul K. Logsdon


SPRINGFIELD, Mo. — The Evangel University Auxiliary will be holding a colossal sale May 9-12. This sale is held annually to raise funds for scholarships and projects.

 Clothing, small appliances, jewelry, books, office items, toys, furniture and other household goods will be among the items for sale in the Mabee Fitness Center, located on the northwest side of the Evangel campus. The sale will last four days:

  • Wednesday, May 9………………………………………………………….. 8 a.m. – 5 p.m.
  • Thursday, May 10……………………………………………………………  8 a.m. – 5 p.m.
  • Friday, May 11………………………………………………………………..  8 a.m. – 5 p.m.
  • Saturday, May 12, is Bag Sale Day—Fill a provided bag for $4! ………….. 8 a.m. – noon

The Ladies’ Auxiliary has been holding an annual fundraising sale since 1964. In the beginning, only unused items donated by the ladies were sold; however, the Auxiliary decided to enlist the help of students for this annual fundraiser when they witnessed all the saleable items students left behind at the end of the school year. In 1980, the Auxiliary held its first all-college sale.

 “Since Evangel’s beginning in 1955, the EU Auxiliary members have been a constant support by volunteering time and talents in order to see the campus flourish,” said James Williams, vice president for institutional advancement. “They have been tireless in the pursuit of funds for campus needs.”

 Major donations of the Auxiliary have included the Heritage Room in Riggs Hall, a pipe organ and grand piano for the chapel, the second and third floor lobbies of Trask Hall, lighting and stage curtains for the Barnett Fine Arts Theatre and furnishings for the Riggs Hall prayer chapel.

The Auxiliary’s most recent project provided uniforms for Evangel’s new marching band, which first performed in the fall 2011 semester.
