Donations requested for 2013 SCCLL Silent Auction!!


There are only 45 more days until the AALL Annual Meeting and Conference begins in Seattle, WA. That means there is less than a month before the bidding begins on items donated for this year's SCCLL Silent Auction. Each year the revenue from our 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 three (yes, 3) $1,500 grants to this year's AALL Meeting in Seattle!

This year's auction opens for bidding June 24, 2013 -- and will continue until we suspend the online bidding on Monday, July 8th at 6:00 pm (EDT). The auction will resume "live" on Sunday, July 14, 2013 at the SCCLL Breakfast and Business Meeting in the Sheraton Seattle Hotel & Towers.

Although we have some very 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? Hand crafted items, small items and gift certificates are always welcome. 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 Include a picture of the item, brief description, the value of the item and 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 Seattle, but still want to participate), include that request as well.
