Participating charities raise money by selling tickets for $5 each, which entitles purchasers to attend a private 4-hour sale. The entire $5 from every ticket sold goes to the participating charity so it's a great fund-raising opportunity for your church, school or community organization.  The more tickets sold, the more money raised.
