The Spring Travel Auction organized by the Convention & Visitors Bureau ends at 11:45 p.m. Saturday. Have you placed your bids?

Not only can you get great prizes at great prices, funds generated by the auction will go to he Mother’s Industry Support Fund — a partnership between Mother’s Brewing Company and the Community Foundation of the Ozarks to help unemployed hospitality workers in Springfield.
