Komets items to be auctioned at fundraiser

Komets items and memorabilia are included in a March 22 fundraiser for Whitney Young Early Childhood Center.

The club donated an autographed used stick, a team-autographed T-shirt and four lower-bowl scrip tickets for next season, the center has announced.

These items will be auctioned as a basket at an event from 5 to 7:30 p.m. A collection of Komets bobbleheads also will be auctioned individually.

In addition, other businesses and artists, including Whitney Young students, have donated auction items.

Tickets to the event, which includes live music, cheese tasting, hors d'oeuvres and the silent auction, cost $10 each or $15 per couple in advance; call 467-8950.

The center seeks to replace a large playground set for the school, and wants to build a smaller set for pre-kindergarten students that would be accessible for students with disabilities.
