These banners were hung throughout the gym. The silent auction runs from 5:00 to 7:30. Different portions of the silent auction are shut down in phases so that you have a chance to bid on all sorts of items. The silent auction has hundreds of items to bid on. At 7:30 the guests are seated at their assigned tables for the meal. The meal consists of prime rib or chicken, baked potato, dinner salad, vegetable, dinner roll, and dessert. The event is also open bar all evening.This year we were pleased to have the State of Nebraska's Governor and his wife in attendance at the event. The Governor and his wife donated lunch for 8 people at the governor's mansion. This item on the oral auction sold for $1600. Sorry this is not a very good photo, but our table was not very close to the stage for a good photo.
There are items on the silent auction for the home, such as this Peggy Karr glass plate. I did not get this item.
