"Nelson-Strauss, Brenda" <[log in to unmask]> wrote: Please Donate Materials for the 2006 Silent Auction With the 40th Annual ARSC Conference right around the corner (May 17-20), I'd like to ask everyone to consider donating one or more items for the Silent Auction, ARSC's biggest fundraiser. The Silent Auction has become an eagerly anticipated event at our annual conferences. Each year, hundreds of items are offered for sale to the highest bidders. Books, CDs, vintage 78 rpm & LP records, audio products and related items are all available, and incredible bargains can often be had! Donations need not be new, but should be clean and in good condition. All proceeds go to ARSC, which is a non-profit, 501.C.3 organization. If you are attending the conference, you may drop off your auction items at the appropriate tables in the exhibit area where you will also have the option of setting minimum bids. Even if you are not able to attend the conference, you may still make a donation, but please hurry. If you plan to ship materials, they should probably be in the mail by the first week of May. Please make sure any packages are clearly labeled "ARSC Silent Auction" and ship to: Laurel Sercombe ARSC LAC Co-Chair Music Building, Rm. 102 School of Music Box 353450 Seattle, WA 98195-3450 (If your shipper demands a street address, please let them know that there is no street address other than Music Building and that all local carriers know the university campus and deliver here daily!) If you have any additional questions about shipping, please contact Laurel Sercombe (Local Arrangements Co-Chair): [log in to unmask] ; 206-543-0974. If you have questions of a general nature about the auction, please contact Kurt Nauck (ARSC Conference Manager): [log in to unmask] Thank you for supporting ARSC!
