As part of the evening festivities, each contestant will provide an item or groups of items to be auctioned off. Some examples of past years items included a deluxe golf package for a foursome to play at 5 of the most prestigious golf courses in Fairfield and Westchester counties. Other items included private horse riding lessons and a family four pack to the Intrepid in NYC. Past items that have been featured include tickets to M. Butterfly and custom designed jewelry for the event.
The total generated by these items in the silent auctions will be converted into votes for each of the stars helping them in the race for the people’s choice award.
