Items Needed at CAS Annual Meeting, October 27-29, 2017

posted September 3, 2017

Items needed for Silent Auction

An important part of the CAS annual meeting at the end of October will be a silent auction and the money which is earned from the auction will be used by the Alice Hamilton Fund for scholarships to college students in archaeological fields. It is important that there be as many items as possible and your donation will make a difference.

DROPOFF: The event is at History Colorado at 1200 Broadway, Denver, CO. Your donations can be dropped off there on Saturday morning, October 28, or on Friday evening, items can be delivered to 1961 South Marion Street, Denver, CO near Downing and Evans.

ITEMS: Small or large, anything is appreciated. Archaeological items are welcome such as pottery, anything with rock art designs, books etc. Other items are welcome too. Someone might like to lead a great field trip that people could bid on. Please have an idea of the value or the amount you think a starting bid should be. If you cannot deliver the items, a way will be found to get them to the museum. And be sure to plan on bidding on many other exciting items. Thanks so much.

Contact Betsy Weitkamp for more information.
