Come to the Lone Star Loot Auction!
Hey all you cowboys and schoolmarms, what’s more fun than a free-for-all in a Texas saloon? The Lone Star Loot Auction, of course. It’s the blow-out of the summer, and if you’re comin’ to the 2015 ACB conference and convention in Dallas, you better come on down!
Yessirree, the evening of Wednesday, July 8 will be filled with bargains, with the proceeds supporting the American Council of the Blind. There will be games, food, jewelry, some unique vacation packages, and some surprises that you’ll only find at a Texas auction. For example, there ain’t no bull when it comes to biddin’ on a couple of pure Texas horns to hang on your wall.
If you are able to donate an item to the auction, you need to provide auction committee chair Leslie Spoone with a description of the item by May 31, either via e-mail, firstname.lastname@example.org, or by telephone, (407) 929-9837. You may ship the item to either ACB Auction, Leslie Spoone, 3924 Lake Mirage Blvd., Orlando, FL 32817-1554, or to Stuart Swartz, 1201 Medical Ave. Apt 3316, Plano, TX 75075. The item must be received by May 31.
Finally, unless a donor arranges to pay for shipping, the cost and responsibility for shipping items that cannot be carried home will be that of the winning bidder. For that reason, we urge donors of items that may need to be shipped home, such as baskets, to consider packing them in a box or other manner that will either allow the item to be carried home or easily prepared for shipping.
So, all you cowpunchers remember that the biggest show in Dallas is going to be the Lone Star Loot Auction!
