Fall is almost here, and planning has begun for the eighth annual ACB Holiday Auction. This year’s extravaganza promises to be a full evening of bidding and smiles and fun, fun, fun.
The 2018 Holiday Auction was a huge success. Packed with holiday treats and great gift ideas, the auction raised over $13,000 for ACB Radio. For the first time in the history of the auction, participants were actually on the air, bidding in real time, because we utilized the Zoom platform for the auction. Such excitement! Such fun!
The Holiday Auction Committee, ACB Radio, the Radio Storm and the Kentucky-based broadcast team, and the ACB Minneapolis staff are gearing up to bring you a wonderful shopping experience and the perfect opportunity to support ACB Radio!
We need your help now in order to make the 2019 Auction an even bigger success. Individuals, chapters and affiliates, and businesses are invited to contribute items to the Holiday Auction. Some examples of popular items include candy, cookies and other holiday treats; jewelry; technology; handcrafted items; music boxes and collectibles; gift cards; and holiday decor. Join our 2019 holiday parade of affiliates and chapters by contributing a food or other item traditional to your area.
All items donated to the Holiday Auction will be displayed on our auction preview page on the ACB website. All donors will be acknowledged, both on the website and on ACB Radio during the auction. Donors and winning bidders will also be spotlighted in “The ACB Braille Forum” in early 2020.
Notify us right away that you plan to donate item(s) to the auction. Share a description of each item with us so we can begin creating the auction preview page.
IMPORTANT CHANGES — The deadline for submitting items is earlier this year. Send all items, except homemade goodies, to us by Oct. 10. This will allow us to take photos, finalize the descriptions, and post your items on the ACB website.
The address to which items are to be sent has changed. Please DO NOT send items to the Minneapolis office. All items should be sent to:
ACB Holiday Auction
148 Vernon Avenue
Louisville, KY 40206
