proceeds will benefit the Mike Modano Foundation, founded by Dallas hockey-

legend Mike Modano, helping at risk children in the DFW area.  Modano himself will

First Place will win $1,000 and their image for everyone to admire on the

restaurant’s wall next to others who will win their spots through an upcoming

auction.  Second place will win $500 and third $250.
