Schowatler Villa is preparing to celebrate Villa Days from Sept. 19 to 21. The weekend long event includes activities for the whole community, from a silent auction to
This year, Tyson Miller has put his pride on the line to raise awareness, and donations, for the silent auction.
Each year, Schowalter Villa employees donate goods and services toward the Silent Auction. These goods are packaged into themed baskets which are on display at The Waters Edge and Hesston Wellness Center beginning Monday, Sept. 16 and up for auction during Villa Days.
Miller said his involvement in the Silent Auction is connected to an item to be auctioned during the live auction on Friday, Sept. 20.
The showcase auction piece is an AAU League King Motors basketball jersey.
The jersey is a 1951 or 1952 jersey and is a complete uniform set.
“There is a deep history with the uniform. It’s a pretty cool thing itself. It’s a neat thing. However, it will not be neat to wear. But for people interested in those kinds of collectables it is a very unique thing,” said Miller.
Miller said he was volunteered by Cindy Janzen to model the uniform as part of a promotion for the auction.
