Annual Benefit Auction – October 28, 2018

Join Us as We Highlight the FUN in FUNdraising!

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 28th 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 28th 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 by 2:15. The event will be held in Griffith Hall at Ludwig’s Corner Fire Company. The address is 1325 North Pottstown Pike, Glenmoore, PA.

Where do I get tickets? The price of admission is $20 per person in advance (by October 20th), and $25 at the door, or Oct 21st-28th. Admission includes delicious hot and cold hors d’oeuvres. There are no physical tickets, electronic tickets are available here on our website. 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 ticket return coupons or online payment by October 20th. Tickets at the door will be 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 download a flyer. Special thanks to Elliot (a CAN alumnus) & Penny (a CAN friend) for helping to defray the cost of renting the venue, and to CAN alumni Chance and Magic (and their human) for catering this year’s event. If you want to help us cover the remaining cost of the venue, we will gladly let you know what is needed.

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 very many larger items with a value of less than $60. One never knows which items will bring in the big bids!!

What is the deadline to donate items? The deadline is October 14th. After that date, we may still be able to take high quality items that will bring a good price at the auction. Please do not bring items to the auction as last-minute additions.

What payment is accepted at the event? Cash and checks for purchases under $100. Credit cards can be used for purchases over that amount.
