TORONTO -- The Jays Care Foundation's Charity Broadcast Auction raised $256,235 during Thursday night's game against the Indians.

Viewers of the nationally broadcast game had the opportunity to support the foundation's annual event until the eighth inning.

The proceeds from the event will support Jays Care Foundation's programs and outreach initiatives.

Among the big ticket items up for grabs was the knuckleball lesson from R.A. Dickey, a Spring Training getaway, a Little League pitching lesson with Steve Delabar and an all-access experience at a future Blue Jays game, and more.

Fan packs include a 2014 Blue Jays autographed baseball, a team cap, a team luggage bag, a collectible bobblehead and a Jays Care water bottle, among other items.
