Proceeds pay for four $2,000 scholarships awarded to local graduating seniors. Three scholarships go to Arlington High School graduates, and one to a Lakewood High School graduate.

Auction items include furniture, gift baskets, tickets, products and gift certificates from local businesses, and more.

Also up for auction is a flag that has flown over the U.S. Capitol.
