Come one, come all to the 2019 annual SAAC auction, Saturday, October 12 at the LSSU Cisler Center Ballroom!

Frank Blissett is the Auctioneer!

The 2019 annual SAAC auction will take place on Saturday, October 12, at the LSSU Cisler Center Ballroom. Frank Blissett is the auctioneer. The auction itself is free of charge and all are welcome.

As usual the auction will be preceded by a fine meal. We always stress that you don’t have to attend the dinner to attend the auction, but you’ll enjoy the food and the socializing, and it comes with perks: a wine and cheese social and comfortable table seating throughout the auction.

Dinner is $30, but all arts council volunteers and their significant other and all auction donors come in for $25. The dinner reservation deadline is Wednesday, October 9—the Cisler Center needs a count.

Timing is as follows: Viewing of auction items from 4 p.m. Buy it Now Tables open and Wine and Cheese Social begins at 5 p.m. Buffet dinner begins at 6 p.m. and the auction begins promptly at 7 p.m.

To make your reservation for dinner e-mail or call Pat Claxton at 635-0424 or Jean Jones at 906-437-5463.
