2013 CONTEMPORARY LONGRIFLE FOUNDATION
FUND RAISING AUCTION A GREAT SUCCESS!
“Thanks To All For A Great Auction”
Held on August 17, 2013 at the Annual CLA Show and Meeting, Lexington, KY
“This year’s auction was a tremendous success! 21 superb artistic works by 25 CLA artists generated an excitement at the auction which prompted buyers to step forward and take home some great contemporary art.
This year the generosity of our contributing artists and donors allowed the CLA to offer the most diverse group of items ever in the auction. Each item was an outstanding example of these artists’ work and important part of the auction’s success. One of the things that sets our annual auction apart from many other fundraising auctions is that these are not “white elephants” that people had laying around their basement, by any means – these items represented the artist’s finest work and offered buyers the opportunity to take home the best of the best in the world of contemporary longrifles and related accoutrements and art. The firearms projects of course generate a lot of interest and sales but I also want to point out that almost half of the auction total sales were generated by accoutrements such as knives, pouches, horns, trade silver, axes, paintings, Native American bows and canoe models. We had a great cross-section of our artists contributing their works and all were equally important to the auction’s success.
After a year’s work to make the 2013 War of 1812 ‘Path to Freedom’ Fundraising Auction an event to remember, I’m almost sad to say it’s over. As the CLF Fundraising Committee chairman I had the good fortune to work with the artists and get to know them and their work. Thanks to each of them for all of their efforts and for making the 2013 CLF Fund Raising Auction the big success that it was. And to all the ‘behind the scenes’ volunteers, and donors, too. And finally – thank you to all who stood up at the auction and contributed support to the organization and artists by buying these fine items. Your generosity is appreciated as well.
Thanks again to everyone.”
