Come this Sunday night (Feb. 25), the United States Harness Writers Association will host its annual Dan Patch Awards Night and part of the festivities will be the largest silent auction in the history of the event.

Thanks especially, to all the donors who came forth with some super items.

"Members from all corners of the harness racing community have really supported our silent auction with donations this year," said Tim Bojarski, president ofUSHWA. "And as a result, we have a plethora of quality items for everyone to bid on. With a large live crowd expected and with the opportunity for anyone to bid in advance from home, this auction could prove to be one of the most profitable ever. And all the proceeds will help fund worthy initiatives within the industry, spearheaded by the Harness Horse Youth Foundation and USHWA."

There are 26 unique items in the silent auction, great vacation and racing packages, superb artwork, special collectables, gift certificates, media services and even private handicapping lessons. Something for everyone.

The items in the auction are listed below with the donor(s) for each item. For complete information, item descriptions, available photos and bidding instructions, please visit http://www.ushwa.org/ or call Steven Wolf at 954.654.3757 or Ellen Taylor at 317.908.0029.
