John Pannell, tournament director, told the Bartlesville Examiner-Enterprise that the main prize is a trip for two to the Little League World Series championship game August 26-29. The trip includes airfare for two to Williamsport, PA, a hotel room for three nights, and two tickets to the games. The winner will be revealed during the Bartlesville Doenges Ford Indians game at 7 p.m. on Sunday, July 3, 2016. Fireworks will not be held after the finals on Sunday.

The silent auction also includes several autographed items. T-shirts will also be available for $25 to benefit the Drive for Five campaign.
