Due to an overwhelming response in donations and raffle ticket sales we have decided to include a SILENT AUCTION for several items. The Raffle will continue as planned and we are very excited about our list of prizes which include gift certificates, event tickets, sports jerseys, wine and artwork.

The SILENT AUCTION will run congruently with the Raffle and will allow people who did not have a chance to win in the Raffle to bid on specified items. The SILENT AUCTION will continue past (8pm) the estimated time we expect for the Raffle to end.

REMEMBER: There is no entrance fee. You may come for free once the Raffle has ended and gain a chance to bid in the AUCTION.

Here is a list of some of the items that will be up for bidding in the SILENT AUCTION:
