For every $1 spent at participating merchants, ladies will receive a raffle ticket to enter into the Tricky Tray Auction. Ticket stations will be placed on each block for ladies to redeem their receipts for tickets. At 9 p.m. everyone is invited to attend the complimentary champagne reception at Oh’Brian’s Pourhouse at 200 South Ave., where the winners will be announced for the Tricky Tray Auction.
