Guests will also have the opportunity to play games with chances to win gift cards and other prizes. The evening concludes with a live auction featuring an array of fabulous and unique items and a performance by Dave Coulier ("Joey" from the hit ABC television series, Full House and Netflix's "Fuller House".
