SV Model U.N. hosting unique Paddle Party fundraiser TONIGHT
Susquehanna Valley's Model United Nations will host a unique fundraiser Thursday, January 16, 6:00-9:00 p.m. It's a Paddle Party/Quarter Auction in the high school cafeteria. Cost of admission is $5 and each auction item is a quarter. THIS FLYER has all the details. 

Here's how it works:
For your $5 admission, you'll receive 4 paddles and chips (with matching numbers for bidding). Chips are placed into the large drawing bin for the auction. For each chance/bid, you place 1 quarter into the cup on your table and raise your paddle(s). If we draw your number you win the item. If a number is drawn and there was no bidder, we keep going until someone wins!! There will also be refreshments and auction items for sale, all to benefit the SV Model U.N.!
 
"The Model U.N. is when students on a team are assigned a member U.N. country (last year we were Sweden) and in pairs they have to write a position paper on one of the 2015 sustainability goals of the United Nations and present it to a committee," explained advisor Jody Butts. "Students can present resolutions or debate ones already presented. There are over 1200 students from 90 countries that come to NYC to "re-enact" sessions at the U.N. and debate topics while trying to come up with U.N.-style resolutions that are then voted on. It is a 48 hour intensive conference. We received a scholarship for the conference and the hotel, and are now using the paddle party/quarter auction to raise money to pay for the bus."
