2014 Silent Auction Needs Your Donations

PrintEmail

The 2014 SCCLL Silent Auction  opens for bidding Monday, June 23, 2014 -- and will continue until we suspend the online bidding on Tuesday, July 8th at 5:00 pm (Central Daylight Time). The auction will resume "live" on Sunday, July 13, 2014 at the SCCLL Breakfast and Business Meeting in the Marriott Rivercenter.

Each year the revenue from this auction provides funding for member grants to attend the AALL Annual Meeting and the Equal Access to Justice Conference. Your generous donations and spirited bidding last year generated enough funding for the SCCLL-SIS to provide two grants to this year's Equal Justice Conference in Portland, Oregon and two grants to attend the AALL Meeting in San Antonio -- a total of four (yes, 4) travel grants.

Although we have a few nice items ready for bidding, we need your donations to make this one of our most successful years. Need ideas? Perhaps you or someone you know likes to knit, crochet, cross stitch, throw pots or do bead work? Perhaps there are items unique to your city and/or state? Jewelry, scarves, books, cards, and food (chocolate!!!) are always popular items, as well as other small and/or light weight items easily transported by airplane.

Once you've collected your items for donation, send  a *separate* email message for each to gail.warren.56@comcast.net. Include the following in your message:
1. a picture of the item
2. brief description
3. the value of the item
4. the opening bid.

If you prefer that your item be designated as "Online Only" bidding (especially if you are unable to attend the meeting in San Antonio, but still want to participate), include that information too.

The bidding for online only items will close on July 8, 2014. As soon as we receive payment for your item, I'll contact you and the recipient so you can coordinate shipment/delivery of your donation. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact us.
