Silent Auction

The silent auction includes a wide array of exceptional items that will appeal to every taste, for example:

Golfing aficionados will not be able to resist the chance to spend a week in a cottage only ten minutes from the "Old Course" at St. Andrews in Scotland.

For those interested in a get-away somewhat closer to home, perhaps the award-winning Saint Paul Hotel or the romantic St. James Hotel in Red Wing will provide the ideal retreat.

If gardening is your passion, a Toro lawn mower or a selection of Jim Wadsworth bronze sculptures will surely enhance your setting.

Fans of FM107 WFMP Radio will relish the opportunity to visit the Lori and Julia show. 

Whether you are seeking a new experience in culture, on the course, as a gourmet, or being pampered, there is bound to be an item in the auction that you just can't pass up!
