Broome Sports Foundation Holds Auction Tonight
The Binghamton Mets host the Portland Sea Dogs in a doubleheader tonight beginning at 5:05 PM. The Broome Sports Foundation is holding the second night of its benefit auction. Items are displayed in the concourse of NYSEG Stadium behind home plate.
Last night over 70 items were up for bid in the silent auction and tonight another 70 or so items are available. Autographed items include jerseys, photos, books and other memorabilia. Many items are baseball-related but the collection includes souvenirs from a number of other sports as well.
Proceeds from the auction benefit the Broome Sports Foundation and the Tommy Mitchell Memorial Scholarship Fund. The Foundation has awarded well-over $100,000 in scholarships to outstanding student-athletes in our area who look to further their education. Scholarship information is available tonight at the auction as well.
