It's time to begin planning for the sixth annual ACB Radio Holiday Auction, coming to you live on Sunday, December 3, from 7:00 PM to midnight Eastern Time (4:00 PM to 9:00 PM Pacific), or until all items are sold. This year's auction promises to be a full evening of bidding and smiles and fun, fun, fun. The 2016 Holiday Auction was a huge success. Packed with holiday treats and great gift ideas, the auction raised over $12,500 for ACB Radio. The ACB Radio and Minneapolis office staff and the Holiday Auction Committee are teaming up to bring you a wonderful shopping experience and the perfect opportunity to support ACB Radio! But we need your help now in order to make the 2017 Auction a 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; unusual music boxes; gift cards; and holiday decor. Join our 2017 holiday affiliate parade by contributing a food or other item traditional to your area or representative of your special-interest affiliate. All items donated to the Holiday Auction will be displayed on our auction preview page, coming in early November. 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 2018. Notify us now that you plan to contribute item(s) to the auction. 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 November 1. The address is: American Council of the Blind Attn.: Holiday Auction 6300 Shingle Creek Pkwy., Suite 195 Brooklyn Center, MN 55430.
