Angels Batting Practice
Bidding Starts at $500

You and three guests can enjoy watching one hour of practice batting – from 4:30pm-5:30pm – with our local home team, the Angels, during the 2014 season! 

You and three guests can enjoy tickets to that same Angels game.

Restrictions:  The game will be mutually convenient, but no Friday nights and sorry that the Yankees, Red Sox and Dodger games are also unavailable for this prize.

Fire Arms Training Simulator
Bidding Starts at $250

Spend one hour with Anaheim PD, while video scenarios are projected onto a screen, so you appear to be in the middle of a real-life confrontation as a police officer. You're holding actual weapons, which have been altered to work with the simulator and do not have bullets. The simulator re-enacts real-life scenarios.

The challenge is deciding "when" - or even "if " - you need to shoot at all.
