Call for Consignments from Auction Firms for our
5th Annual Tour de Cure Auction to Benefit the American Diabetes Association.
I am announcing the 5th Annual Tour de Cure Charity Auction for the American Diabetes Association.
This is a call for consignments. We are looking for auction firms to donate stamps or covers to the auction.
In return, we can give you a charitable deduction and credit toward Stamp of the Day (we will double your contribution).
Last year we had 12 auction firms participate and raised over $45,000 for the ADA. We would like to do the same or better this time.
I am looking for auction firms that will donate stamps or covers to the auction. We are looking for consignments (anywhere from 5-20 lots) from the auction firms in the $1,000 - $2,000 range.
You will get a byline for your auction firm on each item you consign identifying you as the donor.
Slight change this year. Because I now have a better understanding of how charitable auctions are conducted, the auction firms will also get the option
to also take their own charitable deduction for their donations. I will continue to give the auction firms credit for Stamp of the Day insertions at double what
the consignments realize.
If you use Stamp of the Day, this is a great deal for you to cut your stamp of the day expenses in half.
This is the kind of event where everyone wins. Diabetes affects many people in Philately. I receive nothing but thanks and appreciation for the firms that are involved in this effort.
Please call me at 919-403-9459 for more details. But the process will be very simple. I just need the stamps (and scans if convenient for you) with accurate descriptions by Jan 31th.
Please also provide an accurate estimate of its market value.
I will need 2 or three sentences example "donated by ACME Stamp Auction company, conducting Stamp auctions since 1933 with specialization in US Classics and Revenues"
and we will take care of the rest.
Thank you so much for your consideration of this matter.

rather get stamps and covers.
