The Steering Committee’s Commitment to Excellence (CTE) Dinner Committee is excited to announce that Rock Cartwright has confirmed his attendance at the dinner!   JT the Brick has been confirmed as the emcee and Coach Fassel has also confirmed his attendance. UPDATE 2/22/11: Fred and Angela Biletnikoff have confirmed their attendance.

In addition, we are working on confirmations from several Raiders coaches, current and former players including – among others – Raiders head coach Hue Jackson and assistant coaches Steve Wisniewski, Kelly Skipper and Greg Biekert and hope to have them in attendance as well. Both Steve and Greg are past recipients of the Commitment to Excellence award.

Auctions – Oh my, it keeps getting better and better!  Both the silent and live auctions are full of items that would make the mouth of any Raiders fan water.   To check out the awesome list of  silent auction items click here.  To view all the great live auction items, click here.
