Cavalry's Veterans of Vietnam and Cambodia
36th Annual Reunion
Aug 23 -
2021 Silent Auction
By Greg Mason
We were unable to hold a Silent
Auction at the 2020 reunion but are hopeful we will have a more normal 2021
reunion. As a reminder, the 2019 Silent Auction raised $9,233 for the 11th
ACVVC Scholarship Fund with 237 items donated and available for bid. The
donated items included many hand crafted items and one of a kind items with a
Blackhorse theme. We look forward to another successful auction.
The auction process will be as
- Items are needed
for the Silent Auction to be conducted during our 36th Annual Reunion in
Dallas Texas. Items peculiar to the 11th Cavalry are always
favorites, and any item of value is welcome, Cavalry related or not.
- We will have a
collection site set-up in the registration area to collect donated items
brought to the reunion beginning on Wednesday from 1pm to 5pm, Thursday
from 1pm to 5pm, and Friday from 1pm to 4pm.
- You can ship
items to Eric Newton, to collect, hold and bring the items to the reunion
for display. If you plan to ship items, please use the convenient Silent
Auction Donor Form printed in this issue. If you bring the items to the
reunion, also complete the donation form and include it with the item.
- The auction will
be from 6pm to 9pm on Friday night with the bidding ending precisely
at 9pm. Those in wheel chairs or motorized chairs will be allowed in at 5:45
to allow them a little time to view the items before the crowds enter.
- Winning bidders
must be present, pick up their items and pay for them between 9pm and 9:30pm
after the bidding is closed.
- If the item is
not picked up, the item will be awarded to the next highest bid at 9:30 or
auctioned off at 9:45pm Friday evening. The bid form will have a place for
you to leave a cell phone number in case we need to call you to let you know
to pick up your item.
- We will be able
to accept cash, checks, Visa or MasterCard for payment.
We do need volunteers to work
the collection site and the night of the auction. We are setting up the
collection site schedule in 2 hour shifts and if you would like to volunteer
please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or 813-220-9027. I will respond to
your email as I receive them.
Our reason for requiring items
to be picked up and paid for the evening of the auction is because of the
difficulties we have had in prior years getting all the items delivered and paid
for. We appreciate your understanding.
We look forward to seeing you
in Dallas and thanks in advance to all the donors!
