Please share widely.

Have you pre-registered yet for the 2019 ACB Radio Holiday Auction,
happening this Sunday, December 8, from 6:00 PM to midnight Eastern
Time (3:00 to 9:00 PM Pacific), or until all items are sold?

The Holiday Auction pre-registration line is open today.  It closes
tonight at 11:59 PM Eastern Time.

Pre-registration is quick and easy.  Pre-registering for the auction
does not obligate you to bid, but it is essential before you can place
a bid.

Call (877) 630-7190 before 11:59 PM Eastern Time (8:59 PM Pacific)
today, Friday, December 6.  Leave your first and last name, telephone
number, email address, and city and state where you live in the
voicemail.  Please do not expect a return call; the call volume makes
this impossible.

If you do not pre-register, you will need to supply the same
information on December 8, the day of the auction, before we can
accept your bids.  The registration line will open on Sunday at 4:00
PM Eastern (1:00 PM Pacific) and remain open throughout the auction.

Today we are featuring homemade goodies in this year's auction. Visit and follow the 2019 Holiday Auction link to see all
of our great items on the Preview Page.
