Buying is underway at the Wings of Hope Champions of Hope online silent auction and will continue through the Virtual Champions of Hope: A Culinary Celebration on Friday.
Proceeds from both fundraisers will benefit cancer patients, survivors and caregivers in the Council Bluffs-Omaha and Southwest Iowa metro area.
The auction offers many goods, services and opportunities:
Pleasure your palate with a basket of wine, dine al fresco or a chef-prepared meal around Chef Dan Benigno’s block
Book a stay at a Blackstone home in Omaha, a cabin in Branson, Missouri, or a Holiday Inn in Ameristar
Catch a live performance like “Grease” at the Bellevue Little Theater, a show at the Rose Theater or a PRCA Rodeo at the Mid-America Center
Watch a Creighton University basketball game, Cyclone home football game, or Storm Chasers baseball game
If you want to get in on the action, play one of Council Bluffs’ hospitality classes, get a free three-month membership at the Charles E. Lakin YMCA, or play a game of cornhole using a Cyclone cornhole board handcrafted by John Harvey. .
