Auction items include: four Giants game tickets, Sac Republic game tickets, Bluetooth AM/FM/CD car stereo, Brizeo kitchen touch faucet including installation, Giants' Brandon Crawford autographed baseball, tool bag full of tools and more.

Food, drinks and Gold Country Soccer apparel will be available for purchase. Donation list and other details are available at the Gold Country Soccer Facebook event page at @goldcountrysoccer.
