2020 Silent Auction

By Greg Mason


The 2021 Silent Auction raised $6,593 for the 11th ACVVC Scholarship Fund with 199 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 follows:


  1. Items are needed for the Silent Auction to be conducted during our 37th Annual Reunion in Brimingham, AL.  Items peculiar to the 11th Cavalry are always favorites, and any item of value is welcome, Cavalry related or not.
  2. 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.
  3. You can ship items to John Welch, 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.
  4. The auction will be from 6pm to 9pm on Friday night with the bidding ending precisely at 9pm.
  5. Winning bidders must be present and pick up their items and pay for them between 9pm and 9:30pm after the bidding is complete.
  6. 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.
  7. 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 gregrmason311@gmail.com 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 Indianapolis and thanks in advance to all the donors!
