It’s time to start thinking about ACB’s fifth annual Holiday Auction, which will come to you live from Louisville, Ky. on ACB Radio on Dec. 4 from 7 to 11 p.m. Eastern (4 to 8 p.m. Pacific).
The 2015 Holiday Auction was a huge success. Packed with holiday treats and great gift ideas, the auction raised a record $13,500 for ACB Radio.
The ACB Radio and Minneapolis staff and Holiday Auction Committee are teaming up to bring you a wonderful shopping experience and the perfect opportunity to support ACB Radio! But we need your help now in order to make the 2016 auction a success.
Individuals, chapters and affiliates, and businesses are invited to contribute items to the Holiday Auction. Some examples of popular items include candy, cookies and other holiday treats; jewelry; techie stuff; handcrafted items; unusual music boxes; gift cards; and holiday decorations. Join our 2016 holiday parade of states by contributing a food or other item traditional to your area.
All items donated to the Holiday Auction will be displayed on our auction preview pages at www.acb.org. We’ll begin posting items as they are received, so visit the preview pages often to see what’s new. All donors will be acknowledged both on the website and on ACB Radio during the auction. Donors and winning bidders will also be spotlighted in “The ACB Braille Forum” in early 2017.
Notify us now that you plan to contribute item(s) to the auction. Share a description of each item with us so we can begin creating its preview page. Send all items, except homemade goodies, to our Minneapolis office as soon as possible; deadline is Nov. 1.
To donate items to the ACB Radio Holiday Auction, contact Carla Ruschival, chair, at (502) 897-1472 or firstname.lastname@example.org, or Brian Charlson, vice chair, at (617) 926-9198 or email@example.com. Then tune us in on Sunday, Dec. 4, between 7 and 11 p.m. Eastern at www.acbradio.org, on the ACB Link iPhone app, or by calling (605) 475-8130 from any telephone.
Thanks in advance for your generous support of ACB Radio.
