With all the changes going on, is there going to be one this year? Seems to me that the past 2 years, I started working on getting donations in Aug. Now it's almost halfway through Sept, and I haven't heard a thing about it!

Please email me at DLDoiron@AOL.com with your phone number so we can talk. There will not be an auction any time soon. The board decided after the last one that it was a lot of work and after mailing items we didn't make a lot of money. We could use items that you get for our raffle at ABC Nationals over Thanksgiving weekend in Fort Smith, AR.

Oh, I'm heartbroken! I was SO looking forward to it! (Bidding on things...not getting the donations, lol!) Has the board considered doing the auction but charging for shipping? That is the way most of the auctions on Bidding for Good seem to do it. If you factor in what was spent for shipping, would that make it worthwhile?

Maybe next year but right now the gal who handled everything is too busy and it was a lot of work for her.

Ah, man. I was looking forward to the auction too. Maybe next year!

I have a bunch of toys I've been buying to donate. PM me an address to send it to and I'll donate them for the raffle.
