Football Auction
The Edina High football team is planning a dinner, plus live and silent auctions, as a fund-raiser for the fall season.

The event will be at Interlachen Country Club, beginning at 6 p.m. Friday, Aug. 18. Those attending will have an opportunity to bid on silent auction items beginning at 6 p.m., when the social hour gets underway.

A dinner will follow at 7:15, and comedian-magician Bill Arnold put on a show. The evening will conclude with a live auction at 9 p.m.

“We have some fantastic live auction items this year,” said football parent Jay Carroll.

The committee for the event is seeking financial donations as well as auction items.
