*** Auction Items
for ACB Conference ***
The 2015 Alabama Council of the Blind (ACB) State Conference and Convention is
going to be exciting, informative, and a great networking opportunity. The
Alabama Council of the Blind has worked hard to have a positive impact by
sponsoring events, supporting blind and visually impaired people, and helping
to increase the quality of life for the blind community. In order to continue
to have the same positive impact, we need your help. As you know,
fundraising is a vital part of any nonprofit organization.
There will be an auction on Friday night of the Conference/Convention. We need
you to help us collect as many auction items as possible. It is sure to be a
good time with a lot of great items to bid on. But we need you to begin now
collecting those items. We also need prizes for the bingo fundraiser on
Saturday evening. Thank you in advance for any assistance you can provide us.
We look forward to seeing you at the 2015 Alabama Council of the Blind State
Conference and Convention!!! Come join us and visit with your friends, meet
some new people and come away with a lot of good information.
