Local auction meets Kentucky Derby

Kentucky Derby auction coming to Centre Ice Arena/

The Kentucky Derby is known as the "Greatest Two Minutes in Sports." If you are in the Traverse City area this weekend you have the chance to make it one of the best nights in sports.

The Centre Ice Auction has been held at Centre Ice Arena for over 20 years now and it serves as a big end of the year party and fundraiser for the rink as well. Being held in early May, officials have had trouble competing against the derby. So they finally decided to combine the two events to make it one special evening.

Doors will open at 4:30 Saturday afternoon with the race taking place around 6:30. The live auction will begin at 7. Lots of great items including vacations, sports memorabilia and golf and restaurant offers will be available for bid.

You can purchase tickets at the door or visit the Centre Ice website:
