An assortment of baseball memorabilia will be one of the highlights at the Central Kansas Medical Center Golf Classic Auction. The event will begin at 5 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 3 at the Stone Ridge Golf Course.

Mitch Webster of Great Bend, a former professional baseball player, has donated a bat and jersey, each with his signature. In addition, his donations include baseballs signed by Zach Greinke, George Brett and Bob "The Bullet" Feller.

Ralph Terry of Larned, another former professional baseball player, also donated a baseball with his autograph.

In addition to the live auction, three silent auctions will be available. One closes at 6:30 p.m., another at 6:50 p.m. and the last at 7:15 p.m. The live auction begins at 7:30 p.m., following the dinner.

Once again, Mike Niedens is donating his time as auctioneer. Cost for attending the dinner and auctions is $25 and all proceeds go to CKMC’s Heartland Cancer Center.

Stacy Hefley, CKMC marketing and merchandising coordinator, said there will be a wide variety of products and services available at the auctions.

"This is possible because of our dedicated auction committee volunteers and the community’s many generous donors," Hefley said. "Everyone can be assured their donations will remain in the community to help patients at our Heartland Cancer Center."
