Not only was a ton of food collected and lots of money as well they also had a silent auction full of different beer stuff.  Most baskets were a mix of beer, glasses and swag.  I bid on one of the silent auction prizes and won!  It was full of all kinds of great things.

I would like to thank all of the organizers of this great event as not only was it a fun little event for a few hours but it supported a great cause!  You never know if one day you might need the food bank so when you have the ability to help others you should!  I look forward to more events like this in the future.
