About Our Auction

This is an Adult Romance (all sub-genres), Teen/YA Romance & Women's Fiction book auction to raise funds for Meade County, Kentucky's School Band Program! The Band was in dire need of new instruments for students that could not afford to buy their own to participate in the Band Class/Program in the Middle and High School. Imagine being a child who wants to participate but can't afford to buy that $3,000 tuba! I personally paid over $2,000 for my two daughters instruments, which is a lot needless to say, and not every family can afford to do that. The Meade County Band Program is WONDERFUL, with amazing directors and fantastic volunteers in the Band Boosters. The children learn so much through this program while also having fun.

Unfortunately, the school, county, nor state could afford to help buy those instruments. The parent volunteers that comprise of the Meade County Band Boosters stepped up to the challenge and financed $56,000 worth of instruments to help out the Band Program! So now the Band Boosters are working tirelessly with Band Parents to fund-raise to pay this amount off. Please give us a helping hand! The instruments financed gives middle school and high school students with the inability to buy expensive instruments such as trumpets, tubas, etc, to play in the band. The sad part is, even with $56,000 worth of instruments, the Band Boosters were unable to buy everything that was needed.

My goal with this auction is to help the Band Boosters pay down some of the $56,000 so that in the future perhaps the remaining needed instruments can be bought. All Fine Arts programs in the public school systems are underfunded and it's up to US - THE GENERAL PUBLIC - to help those programs out so that they can stay alive and well for generations to come! Please know that every penny that goes to this auction (after expenses) is handed over to the Band Boosters. I retain no monetary value for myself. Music, books and art are the joys of life and I want all children to be able to enjoy them. Please come, check out the fabulous books and items up for auction and help me make some music dreams come true for the kids of Meade County, Kentucky.

All auction items MUST be paid for within 72 hours of the auction ending. Anyone who fails to pay for their auction item by the end of 72 hours forfeits their winning item and it will be offered to the next highest bidder. This auction is open to US & International bidders. International bidders MUST AGREE to pay the higher shipping amount provided to me by the United States Post Office once I learn their location or they forfeit their winning items to the next highest bidder.
