Snowflakes and Birthday Cake: 2014 ACB Radio Holiday Auction by Carla Ruschival

It's a holiday celebration; it's a birthday party! ACB's third annual Holiday Auction will be coming to you live on ACB Radio from Louisville, Ky. on Sunday, Dec. 7, from 7 to 11 p.m. Eastern (4 to 8 p.m. Pacific). Kick off the holiday season in style AND celebrate ACB Radio's 15th birthday - all at the same time. Join in the fun from anywhere in the country, from any computer or any telephone.
 
The 2013 ACB Holiday Auction was a huge success.  Packed with yummy holiday treats and great gift ideas, the auction raised over $5,000 for ACB Radio.
 
The ACB Radio staff and brand-new Holiday Auction Committee are teaming up to bring you a wonderful shopping experience and the perfect opportunity to support ACB Radio!  Whether you are searching for that special gift for a loved one or a holiday surprise for yourself, the Holiday Auction has it all: sparkling jewelry, mouth-watering holiday cookies and fudge, exquisite music boxes, and gifts for everyone on your list (even your dog).
