Come One, Come All to the Lone Star Loot Auction!
One of the best-loved features of an ACB conference and convention is the annual auction! Y’all don’t want to miss out, do you?
The Lone Star Loot Auction will be held on Wednesday evening. There will be a whole lot of perfectly legal lootin’! What sort? From chocolate balls to Capitol Steps chicanery, from cakes to quilts, from lunch with the best-lookin’ first vice president ACB has ever had to sportin’ some of the most beautiful baubles you can imagine, this auction has almost everything. You can score a super vacation package or take home a load of Texas bull with a couple of horns to hang on your wall. About the only thing we haven’t got is an oil well, and who knows?
Why do we do it? Why, to support the American Council of the Blind, and skedaddle with the bargains of the decade!
Got something to donate to the auction? Here’s what you need to do. Be sure 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. Then ship the item either to ACB Auction, Leslie Spoone, 3924 Lake Mirage Blvd., Orlando, FL 32817-1554, or to Stuart Swartz, 1201 Medical Ave. Apt. 3316, Plano, TX 75075. Items 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 would 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, come on out in your western garb ‘cause it’s party time at the biggest show in Dallas, the Lone Star Loot Auction!
