Artisans Fundraiser Auction at Pennsic
Unto the gifted artisans of the Knowne World, Greetings!
seeking artists from all Kingdoms to participate in a fundraising
auction to benefit the Society at large. In these troubled financial
times the Kingdom of the East will host an ambitious fundraiser during
the Great Pennsic War. It is to be a magnificent gala and art auction
featuring the most ambitious work you would be willing to donate to this
worthy cause. The date and time has yet to be decided but it will
definitely take place after the Pennsic arts and sciences exhibit so you
will still be able to display them to the populace.
items will be completed pieces only. Works in progress or promissory
will not be accepted due to the large geographic area represented by the
populace. Per state and Federal Law, alcohol will not be allowed to be
auctioned but have no fear brewers and vintners! We will gladly accept
donations of drink (and food from the cooks) to refresh the guests and
lubricate their "uh" wallets. If we have too many pieces to auction in
one evening, we reserve the right to put smaller pieces into a Chinese
auction which will allow greater proceeds through the sale of raffle
The proceeds will be divided thusly. Each artist will
declare for their own Kingdom. A record will be kept of the amount each
piece sells for (or the amount earned by raffle tickets). Half of the
proceeds from each piece will go to the artist's Kingdom and half will
go to Society Corporate. The use of your Kingdom's portion will be
decided entirely by your Majesties and their officers.
planning now! Attempt a work that will be renowned as being the most
sought after piece of the year! This should be a great event and a
wonderful chance to raise funds for our Society. Please contact us if
you are interested in participating and we will send you a registry form
or answer any questions you might have.
