The ever popular silent auction will be held on both days with many one of a kind items such as a guitar autographed by the country act Big & Rich with Cowboy Troy as well as a Terri Clark package which includes tickets to any one of her upcoming concerts and the opportunity to meet Terri along with autographed merchandise.
