And the Winner of the Autographed Fred Biletnikoff Jersey Is….

Raiders Hall of Famer Fred Biletnikoff autographs his jersey for the Sactown Raider Boosters' raffle

It was a great way to end the Raiders season.  The Raiders went out on a high by defeating the Kansas City Chiefs and the Sactown Boosters end of the season Away Game Party was lively – to say the least.

Thanks to everyone who supported our charitable fundraiser by purchasing or selling raffle tickets for the autographed Fred Biletnikoff jersey.  A special thanks to President Steve Kilekas for donating the jersey.   Thanks also to LeBaron Woodyard for designing and printing the jersey raffle tickets and flyers.

The WINNER of the jersey was RON, former owner of MVP Sports Bar.  Ron appeared to have brought his banker with him as he was the also the top bidder on many of the silent auction items including both of the wine baskets and several of the Raiders wearing apparel items.

The silent auction created a fun bidding war on some of the most popular items.  A hopeful Seattle Seahawks fan kept coming upstairs to bid on the Steelers/Seahawks Super Bowl tee, but in the end, Ron was the winner.  An Eagles fan outbid all the Raiders fans and took home the pink women’s glitter tee for his Raider fan girlfriend.  (He has good taste in the company he keeps.)

President Steve was the winning bidder on the bottle of 7 Leguas tequila donated by Paula Buckingham. To add to the merriment, the tequila was opened and shared with all who cared to partake.  New member Pete Reyes was the winning bidder on the autographed copy of The Jim Plunkett Story donated by Denise Browne.

The new owners of MVP donated a cache of T-shirts to the door prize inventory so someone at every table was a winner.  The Members Only door prize was a $25 gift certificate to the Raider Image.
