Live Auction, Silent Auction, and Spinning Wheel

New for this year is a prize spinning wheel!  Each spin will cost $20 and every winning spin will include a gift card or item worth $20 or more.  Gift cards will come from a wide variety of places: local restaurants, food markets, recreational venues, and local theatres.  The spinning wheel game will be fun and it is a great way of supporting Grand Avenue Club.
