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 firstname.lastname@example.org. Include the
following in your message:
1. a picture of the item
3. the value of the item
4. the opening bid.
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.
