Calling All Riverboat Gamblers!

Are you coming to the banks of the Mississippi for this summer’s ACB conference and convention from June 30 to July 6 at the Union Station Hotel in St. Louis? If so, do you like to look for bargains, tussle with your friends and support ACB at the same time? If your answer to these questions is yes, then this year’s ACB auction, “Meet Me at the Auction,” is a can’t miss on your convention agenda.
The 2018 auction will take place on Tuesday, July 3, at 7 p.m., with previewing of items beginning at 6 p.m. As always, there will be bargains galore due to the generosity of our many corporate friends, ACB affiliates and members who donate amazing items for the auction. Without you, this event just wouldn’t happen.
For those donating an item for this year’s auction, but who do not want to bring it with them or who are not attending the convention, you can send it to the following address: Missouri Council of the Blind, Attention: American Council of the Blind Auction, 5453 Chippewa St., St. Louis, MO 63109.
If you are shipping your item, it must be received by May 31. Also, whether you are shipping your item or bringing it with you, you must provide an item description by May 31 to auction committee chair Kim Hebert. You may send her the description by e-mail at or by calling her at (337) 280-9106. Make sure that your description provides sufficient information to enable bidders to know what makes the item unique or worth having.
So, all you crazy riverboat gamblers, come support ACB and have a wild old time and “Meet Me at the Auction.”
