A Great Time in the Lone Star State, by the ACB Auction Committee
If you weren’t able to attend the Lone Star Loot Auction at the ACB conference and convention, you missed a real Texas blow-out. Bargains were the order of the day; from food to collectibles, from jewelry to vacation packages. The most important thing, however, was that the event raised over $19,000 for the American Council of the Blind.
We thank all of you who participated in this year’s auction. We couldn’t have done it without the generosity of many companies, ACB affiliates, and individuals. Many thanks to our guest describer and auctioneer, president Kim Charlson and Brian Charlson, to ACB staff for their tireless assistance, and, of course, to the hard-working volunteers, including spotters and describers. Finally, we appreciate all of you who purchased items at the auction to support our great organization.
It really does take a village, as they say, and that’s just what happened at the Lone Star Loot Auction.
