We will be putting our best paws forward for this year’s gala auction, and we really want YOU to come join in the fun. It’s all happening on Sunday, October 23rd in Griffith Hall at the Ludwig’s Corner Fire Company. With both silent and live auctions, excellent food, and a room filled with cat lovers, the event is always too fun to miss! There is no pressure to buy, but few can resist the wonderful bargains, creating a “purrfect” opportunity to do a little holiday shopping. We will have a great variety of terrific items up for auction.
We are most fortunate to have Bud and Annette Smith from Smith Auction Company 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 23rd from 2-5 p.m. Registration begins at 1:45. Silent auction tables begin closing at 3:15 and the live auction starts at 3:45, so we suggest that you arrive no later than 2:15.
The event will be held in Griffith Hall, a part of Ludwig’s Corner Fire Company. The address is 1325 North Pottstown Pike, Glenmoore, PA – conveniently located on Route 100.
Where do I get tickets? The price of admission is $20 per person in advance (by October 15th), and $25 at the door, or October 15th-23rd. Admission includes delicious hot and cold hors d’oeuvres. There are no physical tickets, and you can purchase admission right here on our website using a major credit card or PayPal. Your name will be on a 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 credit card or PayPal payment by October 15th. (Tickets at the door will be $25 and will available on a first come, first serve basis.)
Dress? We suggest “business casual.”
How can I help make this event a success? If you would like to contribute a new item for the auction, please contact Henry. Also, we could use help advertising the event – you can help us by downloading, printing, and distributing or posting the promotional flyers (which may be found at the end of this article). In addition, we would love to have the assistance of one or more businesses or individuals to cover all or part of the cost of the fire hall. This expense is $650.00. If you would like to cover this cost in full or in part, please contact Henry.
What type of items are acceptable for the auction? Unique items, restaurant gift certificates, practical items, jewelry, items of value, and bottles of wine tend to go well at the auction. Since we have limited table space, we may not be able to accommodate many very large items with a value of less than $60.
What is the deadline to donate items? The deadline is October 7th. After that date, we may still be able to take high quality items that will bring a good price at the auction.
What payment is accepted at the event? Cash and checks for purchases under $100. Credit cards can be used for purchases over that amount.
