The Snoqualmie Valley Veterans Memorial Committee raised about $10,000 during its Veterans Day fundraiser at the Fall City Roadhouse.

The Seattle Seahawks organization made the biggest play of the night, donating $1,000 to the memorial.

The money will go toward building a veterans memorial for the Snoqualmie Valley in downtown Snoqualmie.

The group plans to begin construction in early 2011, according to Chris Chartier, a member of the committee.

Auction items included a football autographed by a Seattle Seahawks player, a soccer ball autographed by a Seattle Sounders player and several packages, such as a Beer Lovers Package from the Snoqualmie Falls Brewery.

The highest bid of the evening was $300.
