Bids for Bay Employee Campaign

Bids for Bay is an annual employee event held to raise monies to support student success at Bay College. In 2014, the Bay College Foundation chose a baked goods competition with the new Bay College logo as the theme.  In 2015, it is Sweet Success representing our strategic priorities. Employees and/or departments were asked to donate goods to be auctioned off during the fall opening days in-service.

The Bids for Bay auction is a kick off the employee campaign. The money raised supports student emergency and scholarship funds which assist students in overcoming barriers to completing their degree or certificate.
