               welcome from naomi chavez
                                     jlpa•mp

I am thrilled to welcome you to License to Thrill, the Junior League of Palo Alto•Mid
Peninsula’s annual Spring fundraiser. The dedicated women on the fundraiser com-
mittee, led by the powerful leadership of Kim Forbes and Dulcy Freeman, have worked
for months. They have partnered with the stunning St. Regis Hotel San Francisco,
cultivated generous sponsors and underwriters, and utilized their ingenuity and
creativity to bring you an extraordinary evening. Thank you for attending!

S.H. Silver Company has added immeasurably to the glamour of our event by contrib-
uting the exquisite jewelry pieces to our raffle. In business on the mid-peninsula for
25 years, S.H. Silver is known for their attention to detail, community-minded focus,
and extraordinary inventory and customer service. Thank you, Steve and Eileen Silver,
for your partnership. I would also like to extend a warm thanks to the generosity
of the St. Regis Hotel San Francisco, along with Gallo Family Vineyards, Greenberg
Traurig, LLP, and Union Bank of California, and all our generous underwriters.

License to Thrill will contribute greatly to the success of the League’s impact. The
fun and glamour surrounding the gala supports the League’s mission of making a
community impact through trained women volunteers. Over 1,100 women on the
mid-peninsula are members of the League and committed to its mission.

Powerfully positive outcomes result from our current community projects which
focus on developing the potential of families. This year alone we have gone into
East Palo Alto to work with families to help break the cycle of poverty; we work
with middle-school students to influence character development with the East Palo
Alto Charter School; and we also work with children on the Peninsula who are from
alcoholic and addicted families to help them cope with their situation at home.
With the First Teachers project, we help to improve literacy and the love of reading
by influencing our “first teachers”—the parents themselves. The HIP Housing
mentoring program pairs single mothers who are working to become self-reliant,
with our League members. Finally, our new project focuses on education and
programs to help combat childhood obesity. While our volunteers plan, support,
and deliver these services, they are building knowledge of our broader community,
and are sharpening their own leadership skills.

Your generous support tonight ensures the future success of the Junior League of
Palo Alto•Mid Peninsula’s mission to train women volunteers to make a difference
in the community.

                                      Sincerely,

                                   Naomi Chavez

                  Frank Bizzarro
                  President, Bizzarro’s Auto Auctions

                   Mr. Bizzarro was born in Pennsylvania and graduated from
                   Edinboro University in 1967, with a B.S. in education and post
                   graduate work at the American Academy of Dramatic Arts in
                   N.Y.C. He was a member of Actors Equity until 1973, when he
                   apprenticed as an auctioneer. He moved to the Bay Area and
opened an antique auction and also worked for Bay Cities and Golden Gate Auto
Auctions. Since 1985, to present, he has been a guest auctioneer for classic car
auctions nationwide. Mr. Bizzarro also has recently performed as an “Auctioneer”
in the TV programs “Nash Bridges” and “The Incurable Collector”. In 1996,
Bizzarro’s Auto Auctions was opened in Redwood City, CA. In the past eight years,
Bizzarro’s Auto Auction has sold more than 30,000 charity vehicles with a sell rate
of more than twice the national average per vehicle. Mr. Bizzarro donates himself
and his auction team to more than 30 Bay Area fundraising events a year.


                        Casino Royale
                        Together since 1999, Casino Royale’s songs, dances and
                        style all set the tone for a happening like no other.
                        Miniskirts and boots, velvet suits, flowers and beads;
                        spy culture mystique; sassy soul struttin’ and eye-
                        poppin’ fashion are all represented in Casino Royale’s
                        action packed performance!

                        Casino Royale’s secret agent show is a one of a kind
                        thriller show staged with Bond babes, secret agents, and
                        the epic tunes from the 60s spy genre including many 007
Themes plus songs from the original Casino Royale movie, Austin Powers, Our Man
Flint, Secret Agent Man, and many more action classics.

7-1, 315 pound Center Shaquille O’Neal is arguably the most dominant player in the
NBA. O’Neal’s list of awards and achievements is impressive: twelve-time All-Star
selection, six-time All-NBA First Team selection, NBA MVP (1999-2000), and NBA
Rookie of the year (1992-93). Most impressively, Shaq is a three-time NBA Finals
MVP after leading the Los Angeles Lakers to back-to-back-to-back NBA Finals
victories in 2000, 2001 & 2002. And now he is trying to do the same with the
Miami Heat. In 1996, O’Neal was selected as one of the “50 Greatest Players in NBA
History.” And his shoe is equally impressive. This Shaq shoe is a size 20, but looks
even bigger. More like a boat than a shoe, it is quite the conversation piece! This
is a very rare Game-Used shoe from Shaq’s rookie season with the Orlando Magic
(1992-93). His foot eventually grew to a size 22 but during his rookie season it was
ONLY a size 20. Shaq’s shoes, especially one as awesome as this, aren’t available
very often. A Rookie season only happens once for each athlete making this rookie
collectible all the more valuable. Get this terrific collectible before someone else

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger is a beast. Blessed with the size of
a linebacker and the mobility of a tailback, he’s drawn comparisons to Buffalo
Bills great Jim Kelly for his ability to remain cool under pressure and strike from
anywhere on the field. A three-year starter at Miami University (Red Hawks) in
Oxford, Ohio, Roethlisberger holds every major passing record at the school and
a number of passing records in the Mid-American Conference. Taken 11th overall
in the 2004 NFL Draft, Ben was immediately touted as a franchise quarterback by
Steelers coach Bill Cowher.

Be the envy of your friends with this replica Pittsburgh Steelers #7 jersey signed by
Super Bowl XL winning quarterback Ben Roethlisberger—affectionately, “Big Ben”.
Having signed with the Steelers in late 2004, much of Ben Roethlisberger’s history
has yet to be written. However, if recent history is truly an indication of the future,
then Ben and his fans are in for one exciting ride. This piece of Steelers’ history is
destined to become more of a treasure as Big Ben’s career takes off. A great gift for
your football fan that would look terrific in any office or den.

This photograph is one of the most famous images in the storied career of
Muhammad Ali. It was 1964 and two worlds collided when The Beatles paid a visit
to Ali’s (then Cassius Clay) camp in Miami during his training for the first Ali-Liston
fight. As the media looked on, Ali performed like the consummate entertainer he
was, and gained millions of new fans. It may not have been his greatest knockout,
but it was certainly his only quadruple-knockout! This handsomely framed and
matted, vintage 8x10 photograph shows Ali sparing with John, Paul, George and
Ringo and includes a descriptive plaque giving the “circa 1964” date. Hand-signed
by Ali, this is a classic collectible that appeals to both sports and music enthusiasts
alike and makes a wonderful conversation piece.

Remember when players actually stole home? This classic collectible captures
perhaps the most famous theft of home plate ever. In the 1955 World Series
between the Yankees and the Dodgers, the Yankees won the first game 6-5 before
losing the series to the Dodgers. In a controversial play during the 8th inning of
that game, Jackie Robinson stole home to bring the Dodgers within a run. Films of
this famous steal are inconclusive, but to this day Yogi is convinced that Jackie was
out. “He was out!” reads the plaque and special inscription on this timeless baseball
collectible, hand-signed by Yogi. Handsomely framed and matted, this is a great gift
for any baseball fan.

Tiger Woods = Golf. Don’t think so? Check out the TV ratings for a tournament
where Tiger is in contention on Sunday vs. one where he isn’t among the leaders.
Put simply, the World loves to watch Tiger hit a golf ball. And with good reason.
Eldrick (Tiger) Woods, now 29 years of age, has had an unprecedented career
since becoming a professional golfer in the late summer of 1996. He has won 58
tournaments, 43 of those on the PGA TOUR, including the 1997, 2001, 2002 and
2005 Masters Tournaments, 1999 and 2000 PGA Championships, 2000 and 2002
U.S. Open Championship, and 2000 British Open Championship. With his second
Masters victory in 2001, Tiger became the first ever to hold all four professional
major championships at the same time. He is the career victories leader among
active players on the PGA TOUR, and is the career money list leader. You may find
other Tiger collectibles but you won’t find anything like this one.

Willie Mays was a tremendous athlete, and every facet of the game seemed to
come naturally to him. He could hit for both average and power, finishing his career
with a batting average of .302, 660 home runs and 1902 runs batted in. However,
unlike some of the game’s greatest hitters, Mays was also an outstanding defensive
player. After their introduction in 1957, he won 12 consecutive Gold Glove Awards
for his outfield defense and gained a reputation for making catches that no
other player could. Case in point: The Catch in the 1954 World Series. This 16x20
photograph of Willie’s World Series catch is hand-signed by Mays and quality
framed in mahogany with a plaque commemorating this great baseball moment. A
great piece of baseball history that would look stunning in any office or den. The

exclusions. Certificates and services exclude taxes, gratuities, and alcoholic beverages
unless otherwise stated, and must be used at one time.

Reservations for restaurants, resorts, hotels and vacation homes are required and
are subject to availability and conditions.

The payment of an auction price in excess of an item’s “fair market value” may give
rise to an income tax deduction for such excess as a charitable contribution to The
Junior League of Palo Alto•Mid Peninsula, Inc. Please consult your tax advisor for
specific details.

Prizes are non-transferable. All items are sold “as-is.”

All items must be claimed by 12:00 a.m. unless size, quantity, or availability
prevents their removal. In this case, other arrangements must be made with the
Spring Gala Committee prior to leaving the event.

Dates for services, vacation homes, parties, etc. are to be arranged by mutual
agreement between Donor and Buyer. The time periods designed for use of
homes, restaurants, services, hotels, resorts, transportation, etc. are not subject
to change.

Unless otherwise specified, all auction items and services must be redeemed
and used before March 11, 2007.

Payment must be made and the Buyer must have an auction receipt before taking
possession of the item.

All payments are to be made in full the evening of the event by cash, check, Visa,
MasterCard or AMEX.

The auctioneer and The Junior League of Palo Alto•Mid Peninsula, Inc. reserve the
right to withdraw any lot or combine any lots at any time before the actual sale.




                                                                                     43
                            auction protocol
The bidder number is given to you upon check-in to the event. Use this number
when you bid in the silent auction. All silent auction items must be paid and
removed from the premises at the close of the evening of March 11, 2006.

                                auction rules
• All sales are final. Auction items, including all trips and stays in homes are
  nontransferable.

• Many of the items have specific conditions such as time limits, availability, etc.
  Unless otherwise specified, all items and services must be used within one year
  from March 11, 2006. The buyer is responsible for contacting the donor for all the
  items and services. The buyer is responsible for being aware of exclusions, date
  restrictions, time limits, requirements, etc., stated on gift certificates or other
  donor forms.

• Tax, tip, gratuity, and alcoholic beverages are not included unless otherwise
  stated. All items that require date arrangements will be scheduled according to
  availability and at mutually agreed upon times unless a specific date given. For
  restaurants call for reservations, no cash back.

                            live auction rules
• The Live Auction will begin following dinner. An auctioneer will conduct the event
  and participants will be asked to use their assigned paddle.

• Place a bid by raising your auction paddle assigned at check-in.

• The highest bidder acknowledged by the auctioneer shall become the Buyer.

• Unless otherwise announced by the auctioneer at the time of the sale, all bids are
  per lot as numbered in this auction guide and addendum.

• The auctioneer has the right to reject any bid and to advance the bid at his/her
  absolute discretion and, in the event of a dispute between bidders, to determine
  the successful bidder or to re-offer and resell the article in dispute.

• Should there be any dispute after the sale, the record of final sale shall be
  conclusive. At the time called for the closing of the auction, the Buyer assumes full
  risk and responsibility for the lot and may be required to sign a confirmation of
  purchase, supply his/her name and address, and pay the full purchase price. If the
  buyer fails to comply with any such requirement, the lot may, at the auctioneer’s
  discretion, be put up and sold again.

                          silent auction rules
• Upon arrival, each bidder is given a paddle number.

• To place a bid, the bidder will write his or her name, paddle number, signature and
  the amount of bid on the bid sheet next to the appropriate item. Once a bid is
  entered, it may not be removed.

• Each increase in the bid must equal or exceed the minimum increase increment
  on the individual bid sheet. The highest bid at the close of each auction will
  constitute the winning bid.

• The silent auction will open at 6:30 p.m. and close at approximately 8:00 p.m. as
  category groups close on a rolling basis. There will be a five minute warning prior
  to the closing of each category. No more bids will be accepted once the final
  announcement is made.

• If you wish to guarantee a winning bid on an item, you may bid three times the
  donor listed value. Draw a line to the bottom of the form and sign your name and
  bidder number at the bottom of the bid sheet.

                    valuation of auction items
The Junior League of Palo Alto•Mid Peninsula, Inc. does not appraise or estimate
the fair market value of the auction items. The donors have furnished all state-
ments of value appearing in the catalog in good faith. All property is sold “as-
is”. The Junior League of Palo Alto•Mid Peninsula, Inc. is not responsible for the
accuracy of the description, authenticity, or condition of any item.

In determining whether any part of the price paid for an auction item constitutes
a charitable contribution, the buyer should be reminded that only the amount,
if any, in excess of the fair market value of an item purchased constitutes, a
charitable contribution. This information is supplied to supporters of the fund-
raiser and they are made aware of applicable laws. However, The Junior League of
Palo Alto•Mid Peninsula, Inc. is not responsible for the tax consequences of any
auction transaction. Persons should seek advice from their own tax consultants
regarding individual tax situations. The Junior League of Palo Alto•Mid Peninsula,
Inc. is a non profit, charitable organization that is tax-exempt under section 501
(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code, ID # 94-1603047.
