There's still time to bid on a once-in-a-lifetime chance to watch the Minnesota Vikings' next home game in the comfort of a luxury suite.
Dakota Dunes-based RP Constructors, LLC and Civil Engineers & Constructors LLC donated the use of the field-level suite to benefit The Journal's Mr. Goodfellow charity, which provided toys and books at Christmas to more than 8,000 needy children last year.
Go to siouxlandbidandbuy.com to place your bid for the suite at the US Bank Stadium in Minneapolis for the Dec. 17 game between the Vikings and the Cincinnati Bengals. The auction will close at 8 p.m. on Sunday, Dec. 10. As of late afternoon Monday, the top bid stood at $5,001. The suite has a value of $20,000.
Though the game starts at noon, the suite will be available two hours before kick-off. That gives up to 20 guests a chance to see the teams warm up and greet the players.
RP Constructors is a heavy civil contractor, and Civil Engineers & Constructors is an affiliated consulting engineering surveying firm.
