Both auctions will conclude at the end of the second intermission on Sunday, December 21. Winners may pick up their decorated ornament at that time. The winner of the dinner will be contacted for additional details. The wives and girlfriends will be set up behind section 119 on the concourse. Be sure to bid early and often.
