GREENE COUNTY, AR (KAIT) -

A local silent auction is offering your child a memorable trip to their first day of school.  

The Greene County Fine Arts Council is holding a silent auction and a ride to the first day of school on a fire truck is among the items up for sale.   

The Paragould and Marmaduke Fire Departments are each offering up engine rides through the online silent auction. For the right bid, a child and a friend could ride to school in style.  

The auction is on the GCFAC Facebook page, and there are plenty of items to bid on.

Restaurant gift cards, decorative items, and even a ride on a private plane are some of the other items listed.  

The GCFAC is a non-profit theater organization in Paragould. The organization's goal is to provide affordable entertainment for northeast Arkansas, according to their Facebook page.

The auction continues until June 15.

To make a bid and see auction items, go to the GCFAC's Facebook page.
