Items in both the live and silent auction will range from official UCM athletic gear to sports memorabilia, vacations, golf outings, and household items.
The event is open to the public. The cost, which includes the dinner and the chance to bid at both the silent and live auction, is $62.50 per person or a table of eight people can be purchased for $500.
