The non-cash contributions (golf clubs, vacations, tours, etc.) are auctioned immediately after the Run and account for a significant amount of the funds raised for the Charities. After the Run, everyone meets in the Poseidon Restaurant (a perpetual sponsor of the Run) for refreshments, followed by door prizes, recognition of 5K race winners, raffle, live auction and presentation of funds to both charities
