Mark your calendar today for our upcoming auction to be held on Sunday October 26th. If you haven’t 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 holiday shopping. As usual, we will have many terrific donated items up for auction in a wide range of prices.
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 26th from 2:00 -5:30 p.m., with the silent auction beginning officially at 2 p.m.. Registration begins at 1:30, and those arriving early can start bidding on silent auction items as soon as they arrive. The silent auction tables begin closing at 3:30. Please arrive with ample time to socialize, eat, and peruse all of the auction items. We suggest trying to arrive by at least 2:15.
The event will be held in Griffith Hall at the Ludwigs 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 18th), and $25 at the door, or after October 18th. Admission includes delicious hot and cold hors d’oeuvres, desserts, etc. Ludwig’s Corner Market will be catering the event this year. There are no physical tickets. You can click here to purchase admission using a major credit card. Your name will be on the 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 payment on our website by October 18th. After October 18th, our website will indicate whether or not tickets are available. Tickets at the door will be available on a first come, first serve basis.
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. At the bottom of this page, you can download flyers for the event to print and distribute or post on bulletin boards. In addition, we would love to have one or more businesses or individuals cover some of our upfront costs. A donation of $650 will cover our hall rental expenses. One donation of $1000 or two donations of $500 will help to defray our catering expenses.
What type of items are acceptable for the auction? Gift baskets, gift certificates from restaurants, super markets, department stores, etc., practical items, jewelry, items of value, and bottles of wine tend to go well at the auction. We generally only accept brand new items, unless a used item has significant value and is in excellent shape.
What is the deadline to donate items? The deadline is October 13th. 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 or check is preferred. This year, we are planning to take credit cards for those spending more than $100 at the auction.
Dress? We suggest “business casual.”
