Current raffle/auction prize list for Newberg Report Night.

Here's the current prize list for the August 13 Newberg Report Night raffle and auction -- all proceeds will go to benefit the Richard Durrett Family Fund.  David and Donna Gamble of PPG Investments are the title sponsors of the event, and local estate planning lawyer Don Wiley has stepped up to help sponsor the event as well. 


For every $10 you donate to the Richard Durrett Family Fund upon arrival on the 13th, you will get one ticket for the raffle.  Whoever makes the largest donation that day (in the form of raffle tickets bought) will get his or her choice of any of the raffle prizes.  The remaining prizes will be raffled off by drawing.

I’m asked every year if folks not attending the event can submit auction bids.  We can’t do that, as we consider the auction to be a benefit for those who have paid to attend.  You can certainly send in donations to the Richard Durrett Family Fund if you’d like, however.

Stay tuned for updates to these lists.
