More than 30 silent auction items will include autographed items from Eli Manning, Odell Beckham Jr., Victor Cruz and Bill Parcells and an original cartoon of Beetle Bailey by Stamford comics artist Mort Walker.


Auctions will also include breakfast with Sen. Richard Blumenthal to tickets to the Yankees and Red Sox game and to a UConn Huskies game. Blumenthal also plans to attend the fundraiser.
