The New Mexico Highlands University International Humanitarian Delegation is hosting a silent auction from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. on Saturday in Sala de Madrid on the corner of Eighth Street and University Avenue.
All proceeds go toward this summer’s humanitarian mission to Honduras, where the delegation will be working with Habitat for Humanity.
During the trip, the Highlands Humanitarian Delegation will repair homes, dig trenches, stucco and add on to homes for indigenous families.
The public may bid on the wide selection of jewelry, pottery, artwork, handbags and more, while enjoying an evening of music, refreshments and a cakewalk.
The silent auction is one of many fundraisers the humanitarian delegation has organized this academic year – ranging from bake sales to making and selling handmade organic soap.
