All online auction items can be picked up from the Front Office on the Piney Point Campus starting Tuesday, February 8. If you purchased a Sign-Up Party spot, you will receive an e-mail regarding party details soon. A special thank you to our incredible Auction Chairs, Rory Bellow and Kaylen Meserve, and Sign Up Party Chairs, Lindsey Little and Jen Wallis, and their committees for their hard work!
• Big Ticket Items: Be sure to preview the amazing Live Auction items and Big Board packages that will be available on Gala night. This will give you plenty of time to prepare to take a trip of a lifetime or bring home a sweet puppy (or two!).
• Accessories for Grabs: For $50, $100, $200, and a select few at $500, guests can pull an item of equal or greater value. There will be more than 130 surprise boxes available—and they will sell quickly. Plan to arrive on time to snag some coveted pieces!
• Spirit Pull: New this year! A $50 ticket gets you a surprise bottle! Bourbon, tequila, vodka, scotch - we will have it all! Surprise bottles worth $100 or more!
