Bob and Darlene Cavalier here in my happier moments with them. Later in the evening they would outbid me for a sleeve of vintage 1970’s Phillies baseball cards. Later in the evening their was a live auction where breakfast with the Phillies Phanatic sold for $500, a house in Colorado for a week $1800, and something I really wanted a week in Stone Harbor sold for $1900. That actually was a bargain.
