The auction will be hosted at: www.32auctions.com/POLA.
Each charity is collecting their silent auction donations separately. To donate an item or service, contact the charity of your choice as follows (include dollar value and description of your donation):

Costumes are fun!
There will be awards for the best nautical costume. Come dressed up as a sailor, pirate, fetching wench, navy officer, marooned island survivor, or ??? Bring the kids!
Our “open” competition is a separate race for boats which do not fit the “paper only” criteria. Please see the rules for specifics.
