There’s just a few more hours left to place a bid and buy tickets for the packages available for the 2010 Egg Ball event set for Friday.
An online auction site has been created and will remain open for bids until 11 p.m. today. Visit http://www.eggballauction.com to place bids and to purchase tickets.
The Egg Ball is a first-time project to help expand the reach and services of the Mississippi Kids Count program. It is the second of two special events bringing the Mississippi State Bulldogs and the University of Mississippi Rebels together for a common cause.
Friday night’s Starkville event will be held in the Club Level of Davis Wade Stadium with entertainment by The King Beez of Memphis, heavy hors d’oeuvres, and both silent and live auctions.
The event time is 8 p.m. to midnight Friday night. Even though it is called a “ball,” the event will be casual. MSU fans attending the men’s basketball game at 6 p.m. Friday are encouraged to come directly to the Egg Ball, dressed “as is” and have a great time.
Individual tickets are $60 for the event or the $100 ticket offer which includes a ticket to the Egg Ball, along with a bus ticket to Oxford the next day for the Egg Bowl and a boxed lunch.
The first King and Queen of the Egg Ball will be crowned that night. The crowning will be based on “whoever has the highest bid placed for them at the Live Auction.”
Celebrity items and vacation packages will be the main attraction at the silent and live auctions, according to organizers.
Going to the highest bidder will be a getaway package to Beaver Creek, Colo., a Spring break trip to Destin, Fla., plus two more beach packages. Another big auction item will be dinner with MSU coaches, and cowbells signed by a variety of MSU “stars” and national celebrities, including Robin Roberts, Gary Sinise, and Sela Ward.
Local pottery, luggage, children’s clothing, and a trip to New York to see Starkville’s own Travis Outlaw in a New Jersey Nets game are also up for grabs. An overnight adult/child quail and rabbit hunt and two tickets to the MSU bowl game will be highlights.
For more information, call 325-1590.
