On Thursday, March 27, Johnson Hall hosted the 17th annual Bidding Bonanza, an auction that supports the Johnson Hall Scholarship and staff training. During the event, a Chinese auction, a silent auction, and a live auction took place.

The Bidding Bonanza was originally established to raise money for staff training and development and put on a fun event for not only those on the SUNY Oswego campus, but for Oswego’s communities. Raising funds for the Johnson Hall Scholarship Fund, a scholarship that first year residents of the hall are eligible for, was a primary goal for the event.

The Johnson Hall Scholarship Fund is awarded to a current resident in Johnson Hall that exhibits a passion for giving back to the college and Oswego through community service, extracurricular involvement and a drive for academic success.
