As all Hollins veterans know, nothing compares to a party at Amanda Cockrell's house and in her splendid gardens. Bid on this offer to hold your own party of six at her gorgeous residence! Your choice of menu and date. Amanda is an excellent cook. However, this dinner is redeemable when a COVID-19 vaccine is developed, with luck by 2021. So be aware that you are buying a future pig in an undated poke and bid accordingly!
