We're gearing up for what we hope will be the largest and most profitable ACB auction yet! Please make plans to attend the live auction on Wednesday night, July 8th. There will be a preview hour at 6 p.m. and the fun and bidding will commence promptly at 7 p.m.

There will be a tempting array of things to bid on: vacation packages to great destinations; the latest and greatest software and hardware; talking gadgets; celebrity items (including a talking Obama action figure); homemade goodies; craft items, and some very unique surprises never before presented at the auction.

New this year is a silent auction on Tuesday afternoon from 1:00 to 5:00. It will feature items donated by our state and special-interest affiliates. Be sure to stop by on your way to and from other activities to check out the fabulous offerings in our "Affiliate Package Parade." If your affiliate has not yet contacted a member of the auction committee to let us know what you will be contributing, it is not too late. We encourage friendly competition. Which affiliate will be the most creative? Which will provide the item bringing in the most money?

We will accept items from affiliates and also from individuals through Sunday evening, July 5. Please contact Brenda Dillon at (615) 516-7867 (cell phone), or just have the hotel operator ring my room. We need the items so we can add them to the database so that things can move quickly on the night of the live auction.

Thanks for being a part of a fundraiser that is so beneficial to ACB!
