The American Contract Bridge League (ACBL) North American Bridge Championships will be held in March, 2017 in Kansas City---with over 10,000 tables of bridge players attending for ten days of play. 

Tournaments of this magnitude incur heavy costs.  To raise much-needed funds for this prestigious tournament, our District is participating in a Silent Auction at the Holiday Regional at the Overland Park, KS Sheraton Hotel in December of this year.

The bridge players who participate in this National Tournament are between the ages of 10 to 80+.  The ACBL bridge population appreciates fine dining, leisure travel, wine, books, arts and entertainment---and so much more!  Approximately 4,000 to 5,000 players are expected to attend this tournament from the United States and throughout the world.

Our District is seeking goods and services with a value in excess of $50.  Your name and/or company name will be listed on the auction sheets.  Your business cards and brochures can be displayed along with your donated item or service.  This is your opportunity to showcase your product or service with this elite audience.

We need your help.  Proceeds of the Auction will help fund the Spring 2017 North American Bridge Championships.

HOW TO DONATE A GIFT CERTIFICATE:  A member will pick up your Gift Certificate.  We will mail it to the Auction coordinator by December 1, 2016 for the Auction on December 27-29, 2016.  In addition to the Gift Certificate, we need your business cards, flyers or brochures or other information to enhance your display at the Auction and create more awareness for your organization.

HOW TO DONATE AN ITEM:  We will pick up or you may mail your item for the Auction.  In addition to the item, please provide any promotional materials to help create awareness of your organization.  We will work out a pick-up time with you.
