Global Partnerships Online Auction Now Open

CHICAGO, IL (March 6, 2008) – Global Partnerships is hosting an online auction to raise money for student scholarships for GP Trips. You can visit www.missionsauction.com and bid on your favorite items from now until March 20 at 5 p.m.

Bid on items like White Sox tickets, a signed White Sox jersey, a Tuscan dinner for eight, a tour of the Art Institute, African and Thai crafts, student art, and jewelry.

Hopeful winners can go to www.missionsauction.com and support North Park's students with their bids. Last year nearly $2,000 was raised online.

Global Partnerships give students the opportunity to learn about cultures around the world and issues of social justice, to build relationships with people across the world and with each other, and to serve the poor through established church and humanitarian organizations. During the 2007-2008 academic year about 200 students participated in Global Partnerships. This auction gives North Park an opportunity to award scholarships to students who can't afford to pay for the trip. Your support is greatly appreciated.

For more information, please contact Julia Styles Hastie, Global Partnerships coordinator, at (773) 244-4987.
