Submitted article

The A.P.W. High School Club Renaissance will be hosting an Auction on Friday, October 24, 2008 at the Altmar-Parish-Williamstown High School.  The Auction will start at 6 p.m. and end at 9 p.m.   All proceeds from the auction will be used to help construct a Valedictorian/Salutatorian Wall of Fame at the high school.

Items in a variety of price ranges will be available from items valued at just $10 to over $170 valued items.    Presently Skychiefs, The National Baseball Hall of Fame, Staples, Eddy’s Place, The Niagara Parks Commission, Rosemond Gifford Zoo, Dominos Pizza, Edible Arrangements, Tractor Supply Company, Hollywood Video, Plank Road Stone and Hearth, Haufman Hot Haus, Fran’s Florist, The Greens at Beaumont, Cicero Driving Range Pro Shop, Pizza Hut and Wing Street, Walmart Portrait Studios, Azteca’s Mexican Restaurant, Alaura’s Bakery, and Pep Boys have all generously donated items for the auction.  New items are being added daily to the auction list.

You will want to come early and stay the entire time.  Items will be up for bid and then closed out within a few minutes.  There will also be an “Early Bird Special” this year.  We have $49.95 value portrait packages from Walmart Portrait Studios that will be available for just $10.00 each.  There will be a limit of three packages per person until they are gone.

When people arrive they will be given a bidder number as well as a bid pad and a list of the items that will be up for bid.  Items will be put up in groups for people to bid on each item individually.  As one group is closed out, another group of items will be announced to bid on.  Bidders will be able to have a seat at a table and place bids by raising a bid sheet for the item they wish to bid on.  A runner will take bids to the table to be entered.  A running tally of the items people have successfully bid on will be kept and people may stop at the designated table to pay for their items and pick them up when they are done.  New this year – we have added “Bid Wars”.  At the close of a board, people may choose to have a bid war for a particular item.

During the auction we will also have complimentary snacks on the tables for you to enjoy while you bid.

Plan now to come out for this fun evening of great bargain shopping, bid wars, complimentary snacks and to help build A.P.W. High School’s Valedictorian/Salutatorian Wall of Fame!  For more information on the auction or if you would like to make a donation, please contact Penni Clark at A.P.W. High School – 625-5222.
