Auction Additions--You Must Come to the Dinner to Bid!

Auction items continue to pour in. Please note, you must be present at the Muddy Brew-Ha-Ha Dinner to bid on these items. (Send your ticket money to Mary Lou Merkel, 12729 Markaire Drive, St. Louis MO 63146 Remember it's $40 per person and you do NOT have to be a conference attendee to come to the dinner and auction on Saturday, Nov. 2, 2007 at the Hilton St. Louis Airport. Yes, it's a sit-down meal, plus a deejay will be spinning tunes in case you want to dance.)

Here's what we've received recently:

An ARC of Pushing Up Daisies by Rosemary Harris, and an outdoor garden tool set with canvas tool bag; donated by Rosemary Harris

Hardback of Chicago Blues, A New Collection of Crime Stories about the Real Windy City, signed by nine of the authors. Includes a special DVD with interviews by many of the authors and a music video of Chicago as seen through the eyes of the "Blues”; donated by Libby Hellmann

We have a lot more promised items, and we'll update this blog as they come in. Looks to me like I'll be doing ALL my holiday shopping at the CLP Foundation auction. It will be nice to know my money will benefit crime labs around the country. (That is, assuming I can bid high enough to win some of this remarkable bounty.)

See you in St. Louis!
