PUBLIC BENEFIT AUCTION

Saturday, January 19, 2019 – 9:30 AM

www.rgilliganauctions.com

               Auction to Benefit the Tussey Mountain 4-H Rifle Club.  I have done benefit auctions for the Ruffed Grouse Society, Wild Turkey Federation, Duck’s Unlimited, Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation, Friends of the NRA, WPSU, Centre County Youth Service Bureau, The Second Mile, Good Shepard Church, State College Presbyterian Church, Strawberry Fields, Bob Perks Cancer Foundation, Pleasant Gap Lions Club, Centre County 4-H Livestock Clubs, American Cancer Society, P.A.W.S., Unitarian Fellowship, Leukemia Society, among others.  I have been happy to help all of these organizations in raising money for their great causes.

            This particular auction is one I am personally putting together to raise funds for the Tussey Mountain 4-H Club.  This 4-H Club is run by two great organizational leaders Bill and Jana Peters.  The Peters donate their time on a weekly basis to help our local children & teenagers.  Dan Hawk, a retired State Policeman donates his time as well each week as the range master.  In addition, Mr. Gib Moyer donates his time and coaches the air rifle team. The Club meets at the Outdoor Sportsman Club on Purdue Mountain every Wednesday evening from 6-8 PM from September thru mid November and again from January thru the end of April.  The Club provides instruction on firearm safety and marksmanship using the Daisy Avanti Competition Model BB gun.  This 4-H rifle club provides opportunities for the youth to move up to sporter and precision air rifles as they grow and mature in the sport.  Anyone reading this is welcome to stop by the club’s practice any Wednesday evening.

            Now to the point, I have helped raise millions of dollars for local organizations by donating my time through auctioneering.  I would like to help this club raise money to purchase supplies, new equipment, and to assist with the cost to attend overnight matches.

            I would like for any of you to help this club by donation items to be auctioned.  ALL MONEY raised will be deposited into this club’s account.  The auctioneering, clerks, cashiers, will be provided so that all proceeds will go to the club.

If you would like to donate something to be auctioned, please email us at rgilligan1@aol.com as soon as possible so the item or items can be advertised with recognition if you would like to be recognized.
