SOUTH FLORIDA - An auction benefitting Local 10's Making A Difference campaign to build Gratigny Plateau Park in Northwest Miami-Dade County closed Thursday evening.

The Miami Heat donated an official team basketball signed by all the players and coaching staff.  Publix Super Markets donated a catering package for up to 20 people. 

The basketball sold for $2,700. The catering package sold for $700.

Last week, we auctioned off a Romero Britto painting.

One hundred percent of funds raised will go to the Parks Foundation of Miami-Dade and benefit Gratigny Plateau Park.
