Auctions to support Lilies Fireworks fund

A series of auctions will raise funds to pay for a fireworks display at Lilies War in 2014.

The organizer, HL Duncan, writes:

I have been asked to be in charge of raising the funds to pay for the fireworks at Lillie's this year.  I would like to start off by thanking all of those gentiles [sic] that donated at Kris Kinder.  I have decided that to complete the fund raising I will be hosting several auctions in the near future. 

Many of these auctions will be live auctions at events and there will be one online auction that I will host through a Facebook page that I will build and moderate for the sole purpose of this auction.  I will send out a message when that site is up and running with its URL.  It will be a public site and I will have the auction rules spelled out to avoid any confusion.  I know not everyone is on Facebook, but we have people from out of kingdom that want to be involved as well and Facebook is the easiest way to host this auction.  

The first auction will be held at Chieftains in Three Rivers.  The time is yet to be solidified but listen to the heralds at the event.  There will be a couple of Items available in this first auction.  I will have a throwing ax donated by HL Cai Douglas, and a chest donated by HL Avraham bin David. The final item of the day will be a German hat donated by HL Katherine Die Heilige (Kat).  Kat has said if this hat sells for over $ 250.00 she will include a custom German dress or Waffenrock for the winner.  I expect that the bid will make it to that magic number as I have already had individuals show interest in pushing the bid.

If you have questions about the auction and you think others will have the same question ask here on the list and I will answer them.  I will also answer privately if you ask privately.  Please consider joining in on the fun and bidding on an item or two so  this year we can have the best fireworks that Lillie's War has ever had.

Yours in Service,
HL Duncan of Skeene
