Donors and sponsors are welcome. Items donations are appreciated, with description and value required by Sept. 27.

A family sponsor of $500 includes dinner tickets for four. A $400 table sponsor includes dinner at a private table for you and your guests. Other options are available.

Since 2010, the See Ya Later Foundation has helped 64 families during their struggle with a medical crisis. It offers baseball and soccer sports camps, waiving registration fee for players who cannot afford it, and has awarded $21,000 in college scholarships to Auburn high school seniors.
