oz Schwartz   A  12-21-11CAT ANGEL NETWORK AUCTION -OCTOBER 21, 2012

Mark your calendar today for our upcoming auction on Sunday, October 21st.   If you have never attended one of our auctions, you really should make an effort to come this year.  With both silent and live auctions, excellent food, and a room filled with cat lovers, the event is always fun, fun, fun!  There is no pressure to buy, but few can resist the wonderful bargains and great opportunities to do a little early holiday shopping.  We will have many wonderful donated items up for auction.

We are most fortunate to have Bud and Annette Smith from Smith Auction Gallery running the live auction.  They make bidding fun and easy for the novice auction attendee!

When and where is the event? The date is Sunday, October 21st from 2-5 p.m.  The Silent Auction runs from 2-3 p.m. with the Live Auction beginning at 3 p.m.  The event will be held at the West Chester Senior Center, 530 East Union Street, West Chester (www.wcseniors.org).  There is a great map on the senior center website.

Where do I get tickets? The price of admission is $20 per person, which includes delicious hot and cold hors d’oeuvres.   There are no physical tickets.  Just fill out the form below and return it with your check/cash, or by clicking here to purchase your ticket here on our website using PayPal or a major credit card (no PayPal account required).  Your name will be on an advance payment list of attendees, so you will only need to check in at the door.  We strongly encourage ticket purchase in advance and appreciate receiving your ticket return coupons or Paypal payment by October 15th.  After that date, please call or email Henry to secure tickets for the event.  Tickets at the door will be available on a first come, first serve basis.

How can I help make this event a success?
