Guests had the opportunity to bid on some fantastic auction items


 CSL spoke with down to earth Gold Medal Olympian Kyle Shewfelt, a passionate athlete for his sport of gymnastics.  Shewfelt also commentated during the 2012 Summer Olympic games, and did an outstanding job (definitely one of CSL's faves from the games).

Several auction items
