Get ready to bid! Get ready to buy!

Get ready to support the American Council of the Blind 2012 Holiday Auction.
Our first ACB Holiday Auction is filled with great holiday gift ideas, collectibles, and holiday treats.  It will be held on Sunday, December 2, from 7:00 to 10:00 PM Eastern Time (4:00 to 7:00 PM Pacific).  Originating from the ClearChannel studios in Louisville, Kentucky, the auction will be live-streamed on all ACB RADIO channels, and all proceeds benefit ACB Radio.

Here's how it will work:
  • Reminiscent of radio auctions from yesteryear, several items will be up for bid at the same time. 
  • Items will be announced and described, and bidding on each item will remain open for several minutes.
  • To place a bid, just telephone us during the time that the item you want is open for bid.  Bids will be announced on the air.  If you are outbid, you can call back and bid again.  We will announce when an item is about to close.  Winners will be announced on the air.
  • Several telephone lines will be available for bidding.  The numbers to call are 877-560-7900 (toll-free) or 502-571-7900.
  • All items will be sold as is, and all sales will be final.  Shipping charges will be added to the final sales price.  For those purchasing multiple items, shipping will be combined whenever possible.  More information about shipping charges will be provided during the auction.
  • Bidders will be required to provide contact and credit card information during the course of the auction; bids will not be accepted and items will not be shipped to a winning bidder in the absence of such information.
  • Except for baked goods and other food items, auction items will be shipped from our Minneapolis office during the week of December 3.  Cookies, candies and other holiday treats will be shipped from the point of origin; ACB cannot guarantee the shipping date.
  • Visit the Auction Preview page at to check out all of the great items up for bid.  You'll find photos and descriptions of each item.  If you'd like to see larger photos of an item, just choose the link near it's description.
  • Then tune in to ACB Radio on Sunday, December 2, at 7:00 PM Eastern (6:00 Central, 5:00 Mountain, and 4:00 Pacific) for all the fun.

Happy bargain-hunting, and thanks for supporting ACB Radio.
