MUNCIE, Ind. — If you're planning on following the "Yellow Brick Road" to Rialzo VIII on April 8, now's the time to purchase your ticket — and get a head start with bidding on the fundraiser's auction items.

Tickets to Meridian Health Service's annual fundraiser, Rialzo VIII, "There's No Place Like Home," are selling fast.

According to Meridian, tickets are almost sold out, with nearly 900 tickets already purchased.

Rialzo VIII will be at 6 p.m. at the Horizon Convention Center, 401 S. High St.

Community members have until March 17 to bid on more than 20 online items up for grabs during the Rialzo Emerald Online Auction, as part of Meridian Health Services' annual fundraising event.

Items include autographed memorabilia from Taylor Swift, Michael Phelps, Joe Montana, Indianapolis Colts running back Jordan Todman, the cast of "Game of Thrones," "Star Wars," and more.

Also up for grabs (or bids) are jewelry, baking class, Chicago Cubs World Series memorabilia, a trip to the Grand Ole Opry and a VIP "Hamilton" experience.

To see all items and their starting bids, visit qtego.net.

Those not attending the April 8 fundraiser can still participate in the Rialzo Emerald Online Auction.

Tickets to Rialzo VIII are $250 a person and include a $100 raffle ticket. $175 tickets are also being sold, but do not include a raffle ticket.

They can be purchased online at merdianhs.org.

Funds from ticket sales, auction items and night-of raffle items will go toward outreach programs for infants with NAS (Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome) and mothers who are struggling with drug addiction.

In addition to the Rialzo Emerald Online Auction, Rialzo VIII will have a higher-end raffle for which guests can purchase additional $100 tickets for $5,000 to $10,000 items, instead of the usual silent auction from years past.

It's a way MHS aims to focus more on this year's fundraising purpose.

Raffle tickets are $100 each, and can be purchased online or at the event in single or multiple discounted bundles.
