The Texas 4-H Foundation is pleased to announce they will host during the 2014 Texas 4-H Roundup the “I Support the Clover” Silent Auction. There will again be the opportunity to earn money for your local 4-H program by submitting an item(s) on behalf of your county.
The auction will open May 1, 2014 for online bidding. Many items will be offered with BUY IT NOW pricing! Online bidding will close on Friday, June 6 at 11:45 pm. On Monday, June 9th at 9 am the LIVE Silent Auction will begin in conjunction with the Scholarship Assembly. The auction will close at 4 pm on Thursday, June 12th. Proxy bidding is also available for those who are unable to attend Roundup but would like to keep in on the bidding action of the LIVE event.
To be eligible to participate in the county challenge, counties need to submit a silent auction form with description and photo of the auction item by Monday, March 31st. The form can be downloaded at http://texas4hfoundation.org/silentauction/countychallenge/
With the LIVE auction opening on that Monday of Roundup, the sooner we have the physical item the better. If you are able to mail your donation, then please send to:
Texas 4-H Foundation
Attn: Silent Auction
4180 State Highway 6 South
College Station, TX 77845
The Foundation does not have to have the physical county challenge items in hand by the March 31st deadline, just the description form and photo(s). If unable to mail due to bulk of item, let the Foundation office know and arrangements can be made for delivery during Roundup.
The Top 10 items donated by county 4-H programs receiving the highest bid amounts, as compared to the other county donated items, will be awarded as follows:
…of the items selling price
First Place 100%
