Six-week-old Autumn Markos has a rare heart condition and needs a heart transplant. The benefit is to help offset her family's mounting medical bills.

The event will run from 5-10 p.m. and will include a silent auction and raffle (must be present to win). There will also be music and entertainment and snacks donated by Jimmy K's.

Among the auction items are:
