2020 Silent Auction
By Greg Mason
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.
process will be as follows:
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.
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 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.
The auction will be from 6pm to 9pm on Friday
night with the bidding ending precisely at 9pm.
Winning bidders must be present and pick up their items and
pay for them between 9pm and 9:30pm after the bidding is complete.
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
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.
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.
forward to seeing you in Indianapolis and thanks in advance to all the donors!
