Potlatch 15 Clarion West Scholarship Auction

This year's auction will be a whooping, hollering, chocolate-eating orgy of intemperate purchasing and swooping down on bargains in support of deserving students of writing.

To stage this extravaganza, we need cool stuff to sell. Donations we've already received include rare old books, advance reading copies of new books, vintage Freddie Baer T-shirts, jewelry, art-to-wear clothing, beaded sea creatures (as seen in Science News online). Got something nifty to donate? Send me email at kate at clarionwest.org to make shipping arrangements.

As in the past, the auction will have two parts: silent and noisy. The silent auction will take place during programming on Saturday. Items with multiple bids, intrinsic interest, or great amusement value will go to the voice auction on Saturday evening, after the trivia bowl.

Cash, checks, and credit card will all be accepted. All proceeds will go to the Clarion West Scholarship Fund to help aspiring SF writers attend the Clarion West Writers Workshop. The Potlatch auction has been the largest single source of scholarship funds for Clarion West students since the first Potlatch in 1992.

More information on Clarion West is available at the Web site, www.clarionwest.org. Clarion West is a qualified 501(c)3 organization, and all donations to it, whether items to auction or monetary, are tax-deductible.
