Refreshment Stand Auction

High school students enrolled in Erie 1 BOCES' Building Trades program at the Kenton Career & Technical Center have created another impressive structure for the Buffalo Home Show. This 1,500-pound, cedar-lined backyard refreshment stand is approximately 10-ft long by 7-ft wide. With a Corian countertop, a metal roof and electrical connections this building is perfect for entertaining pool-side or under the stars. 

On April 13, the backyard refreshment stand will be sold to the highest bidder during a public auction at Cash Realty & Auctions. All proceeds raised will fund next year’s senior class project.

Through their cooperative, Erie 1 BOCES’ 19 component public school districts share their resources to meet the evolving educational needs of students. For 60 years and counting, Erie 1 BOCES has helped schools with their instructional and non-instructional needs. With nearly 30 career and technical programs, high school students in Erie County can gain career training during their normal school day.
