Carla Ruschival

The Greater Louisville Council of the Blind invites everyone to
participate in our springtime auction, happening this coming Friday,
May 21, from 7:00 to 10:00 PM Eastern Time.

We have an incredible line-up of fantastic items, just waiting for
your bid. Proceeds from this auction benefit the Greater Louisville
Council as well as the KCB Next Generation, Tri-state Library Users,
the Kentucky Council of Citizens with Low Vision, and the Guide Dog
Users of Kentuckiana. If an item is designated by its donor to
benefit a specific chapter, half the proceeds from that item go to
that chapter, with the other half going to GLCB.

Read on for a look at some of the items up for bid. We'll post the
complete list and descriptions in auction order on Thursday.
