Dinner, raffle and auction set for German exchange program – Daily Astorian

Megan Schächer and Andrew Schauermann have taken on the Walldorf Exchange as their senior project, and hope to raise $20,000. Walldorf, Germany, is Astoria’s sister city because it is where John Jacob Astor, who founded Astoria, was born. Every year Astoria students host Walldorf students, and then Astoria students travel to Walldorf.

This educational opportunity has been happening for 50 years. Last year was the first time Astoria students were not able to make the trip; none of them could afford the expense, as the cost is about $3,000 per student.

To raise the money needed this year, raffle tickets and dinner tickets are being sold. The raffle tickets are $20 each, and the prize is an Alaskan Cruise for two. Only 400 tickets will be sold, and the winner will be announced at the German Dinner and Silent Auction, which takes place at 6:30 p.m. Jan. 27 in the cafeteria at Astoria High School.

Tickets for the dinner are $20 each, or $15 for children younger than 10; only 250 dinner tickets are available, and must be purchased in advance. On the dinner menu are bratwurst, spaetzel (noodles), sauerkraut, pork roast, potato dumplings and cucumber salad. Auction items include an Oktoberfest basket, a dresser, $600 worth of free parking from North Coast Mini-Storage, Seaside Wine Walk passes and much more.

To donate items for the auction, to buy a raffle or dinner ticket or for questions, call or text Megan Schächer at 503-440-8316, or email her at mschacher18@astoriak12.org. Dinner tickets can also be purchased at the high school, or online at tinyurl.com/WalldorfDinner. To donate to the project, go to tinyurl.com/WalldorfFund
