ACB’s seventh annual Holiday Auction will come to you live from Louisville, Ky. on ACB Radio on the evening of December 2.
Individuals, chapters, affiliates, and businesses are invited to contribute items to the Holiday Auction and help make this year’s event the best ever. Some examples of popular items include jewelry, techie stuff, handcrafted items, music boxes, countertop appliances, gift cards, and holiday decorations. Sweets and treats are always a great choice; bidders love candy and fudge, cookies, whoopie pies, bourbon balls, holiday breads, etc.
All items donated to the Holiday Auction will be displayed on our auction preview page at www.acb.org. All donors will be acknowledged both on the website and on ACB Radio during the auction. Donors and winning bidders will be spotlighted in “The ACB Braille Forum” in March 2019.
You can help us be sure we have a balanced auction, with items in each category, by letting us know in advance about the item(s) that you plan to contribute. Notify us now that you plan to donate item(s). Share a description of each item with us so we can begin creating the preview page. Send all items, except homemade goodies, to our Minneapolis office as soon as possible; deadline is Nov. 1. The address is: American Council of the Blind, Attn.: Holiday Auction, 6300 Shingle Creek Pkwy., Suite 195, Brooklyn Center, MN 55430.
