What’s New This Year?

Screen Shot 2018-02-01 at 9.18.55 PMMrs. Stack is excited for this year’s auction and the opportunity to possibly win this beautiful 14 kt. gold, 0.12 diamond bar, 18 inch necklace that is retail valued at $800! How can you get in on the action?

Come to the auction and look for our beautiful French “Cigarette” Girls selling candy cigarette boxes and bubblegum cigars for chances to enter the drawing. Each box or gum is just $20! For each one sold, your bid number will be added to a ticket and entered into the drawing. There are only a limited number of boxes and gum for sale, so your chances are good depending on how many you buy!

Cash Bar

Here is how the cash bar works: You will receive your 2 drink tickets at registration, and if you purchased a wristband, you will receive that along with a set of drink tickets (we still need to account for all poured drinks so you need these tickets at the bar). These are considered hosted drinks so they are good for any drink and will have their own color.

For those receiving the two drink tickets, you can purchase additional drink tickets from the Utah Food Service bar cashiers (located near the bars). There are different ticket colors for drinks so they can track consumption, one for Beer at $3 each, one for Wine and one for a Cocktail at $4 each, and one for Martinis (Dirty, Regular or Cosmopolitan) for $5. We will have water, sparkling water, and sodas without alcohol available at no charge.

The bartenders and cashiers are responsible for accounting the number of drinks sold at what price, so they are the only persons allowed to sell the drink tickets. You can pay with cash or Credit Card. You are not limited to how many you can purchase at a time. Because they are handling these monies through a different account, we can not use bidder number. If you really like the way your drink is made, the bartenders will have tip jars out so you might want to have some cash in-hand to encourage that bartender to keep making those drinks the way you like it!
