Reg­is­tra­tion is still open for the Pied­mont Cat­tle­men’s As­so­ci­a­tion’s 18th An­nual Live and Silent Auc­tion fundraiser on Thurs­day, Sept. 13 at 7 p. m.

Glen Hayes, the or­ga­nizer for the event, said the community has un­til Tues­day, Sept. 11 to RSVP for the event, which will take place at the FFA- FCCLA Camp on Ga. High­way 36.

Tick­ets for the event are $ 15 and will in­clude a rib- eye steak din­ner. At­ten­dees are asked to keep their tick­ets to par­tic­i­pate in door prizes.

Hayes said pro­ceeds from the event will go to­wards four col­lege schol­ar­ships in the amount of $ 1,000 each for New­ton, Jasper, Butts and Rock­dale coun­ties.

Hayes said the schol­ar­ships will be awarded to 4- H and FFA students at the end of the school year.

The funds raised will also ben­e­fit FFA ban­quets, livestock shows, beef pro­mo­tions and other 4- H and FFA youth pro­grams.

Hayes said FFA is im­por­tant to students be­cause it helps teach them re­spon­si­bil­ity by rais­ing livestock. He said FFA is also a good pro­gram be­cause it gives students some­thing to do and keeps them out of trou­ble.

Any­one in­ter­ested in at­tend­ing the auc­tion should call ( 770) 7863737.
