Gotta Love Them Social Workers!


My spawn is getting her MSW at the local institute and she and her friends are putting on a silent auction and dinner at our church.

It will be Saturday, February 12th, Darwin's Birthday!

Dinner at 5 p.m.
Auction at 6 p.m.

The idea is to raise funds to send these students to Nashville so they can raise hell, er awareness, on behalf of the poor and needy.


Also, ten percent of their proceeds will go to the Carter County, TN domestic violence shelter, The Shepherd's Inn.

So support these folks, will ya?

They have some good stuff for the auction including a number of gift certificates from local businesses, an ipod, and a pair of my old sneakers.

Here is a complete list of the items.

Here is the official announcement. Click the pic below to enlarge the flier. And click here to download.
The Master's of Social Work Student Association, or MSWSA, of East Tennessee State University is holding a spaghetti dinner and silent auction to raise money for our annual trip to Nashville for Social Work Day on the Hill. During our trip to Nashville, members of the MSW program will take advantage of important opportunities to speak with legislators and advocate on behalf of a specific cause and/or vulnerable population. This will hopefully encourage a lifelong desire for these social work students to remain involved in important legislation and policies that affect the populations we serve.

We also are beginning a new tradition within our program to give back a portion of what we raise to a charity or cause chosen by the members of our organization. This year, we have chosen to donate 10% of what we raise to Shepherd's Inn, which is a local domestic violence shelter. Please help support our cause by coming out to our auction! If you have anything you would like to donate to us, please get these donations to any member of the MSWSA by Friday, February 11th! And PLEASE let either Vanessa Phillips or Ashley Durbin know if you have items to be donated.

Thank you all so much!

Cost to attend the dinner is $5 for a plate of spaghetti! We'll have meat AND meatless sauce, salad and garlic bread!


Find the announcement and RSVP on Facebook.

It is going to be a good night! Hope to see a good crowd!
