Those interested in the auction and/or donating, but cannot attend the event, are able to virtually bid on silent auction items on the event’s auction site from now until the auction closes on August 29 at 8:00 p.m.

A silent auction will also take place offering a wide variety of prizes ranging from a Don Drumm wall art piece, to several pairs of sporting event tickets, to a stay at The Lodge at Geneva-on-the-Lake.
