There are only 45 more days until the AALL Annual Meeting and Conference begins
in Seattle, WA. That means there is less than a month before the bidding begins
on items donated for this year's SCCLL Silent Auction. Each year the revenue
from our auction provides funding for member grants to attend the AALL Annual
Meeting and the Equal Access to Justice Conference. Your generous donations and
spirited bidding last year generated enough funding for the SCCLL-SIS to provide
three (yes, 3) $1,500 grants to this year's AALL Meeting in Seattle!
This year's auction opens for bidding June 24,
2013 -- and will continue until we suspend the online bidding on
Monday, July 8th at 6:00 pm (EDT). The auction will resume "live" on Sunday,
July 14, 2013 at the SCCLL Breakfast and Business Meeting in the Sheraton
Seattle Hotel & Towers.
Although we have some very nice items ready for bidding,
we need your donations to make this one of our most successful years. Need
ideas? Perhaps you or someone you know likes to
knit, crochet, cross stitch, throw pots or do bead work? Perhaps there are items
unique to your city and/or state? Hand crafted items, small items and gift
certificates are always welcome. Jewelry, scarves, books, cards, and food
(chocolate!!!) are always popular items, as well as other small and/or light
weight items easily transported by airplane.
Once you've collected your items for donation, send a
*separate* email message for each to firstname.lastname@example.org. Include a picture of the
item, brief description, the value of the item and the opening bid. If you
prefer that your item be designated as "Online Only" bidding (especially if you
are unable to attend the meeting in Seattle, but still want to participate), include that request as well.
