The Knights of Columbus Live Auction Beer Bucket Split the Pot
Cold beer here! The bar closes during the Live Auction...don't go thirsty...buy a bucket! This perennial favorite is back for the third straight year, courtesy of our St. Columban Knights of Columbus. Enjoy the Live Auction with your own personal bucket of beer delivered to your table by the Knights of Columbus. Not only do you get to enjoy your "suds" during the Live Auction but by purchasing a bucket, you will have your name and bucket number included in a "split the pot". Buckets are 5 beers for $26 of which $10 goes to Split the Pot. The more buckets the Knights sell, the bigger the winnings! Please keep in mind, this bucket is designed to ensure you have a drink during the hour of Live Auction when the bars are closed for purchases. These are not intended to sell to tables for the entire event. An entire table of 10 will only need two buckets. Choices of beer are Yuengling, Bud, Bud Light and Miller Lite. No mixing of beers in buckets allowed. So, buy your buckets, enjoy the Live Auction and just maybe, you'll be the big winner!
The Headbands or Coattails Game
Do you like 50/50 odds? Well then, the game of Headbands or Coattails is just for you! Purchase a chance to win for just $10 and you will qualify to play the game on the night of the Gatsby Gala, not just once, but twice! The game is easy; place you hands on your head (headband) or your tail (coattail) and the DJ will flip a coin to see where it lands...heads or tails. If your hands are in the right spot, you stay in the game. If they are in the wrong spot, YOU'RE OUT! We play until the last person is standing and that lucky winner takes home the cash prize for that round! The more people play, the bigger the cash prize! And no worries, if you don’t win the first round, you’ll get to play in the second round!
Want to get in on the fun? Then get yourself set up to play by purchasing your chance to win in advance! 1 person per wristband. Grand Affair Committee members will put all wristbands purchased at your table on the night of the Gatsby Gala. Good luck!

All wine, beer and consolation prizes will be marked with the winner’s name and can be picked up at the Speakeasy Wine and Beer Pull table after the Live Auction.
