ARRC2011: silent auction for flood victims

15 January 2011

As you will be aware there has been another natural disaster in Australia, this time in Queensland with water covering some 75% of the state and indeed areas of other Australian states. In some areas entire townships or suburbs have been completely submerged and residents have lost everything they own.

On Saturday 26 March, in conjunction with the Australian Romance Readers Convention, we are planning to hold a Silent Auction to raise funds for the Premier’s Flood Relief Appeal.

We are putting out the call for items to be included in the Silent Auction to romance authors both in Australia and around the world.
If you would like to donate items for our Silent Auction you can contact me at (Subject line: Silent Auction) for further details. A photo of the item would be greatly appreciated, whether you are sending the item or bringing it to the convention. A special page will set up on our blog for delegates to view the items available ahead of the auction.

In 2009, due to the generosity of romance authors around the world, ARRA raised over $7,500 for victims of the Victorian bushfires. We hope we can match this for the flood victims in Queensland. Anything you can send us would be greatly appreciated.

UPDATE: We have now listed 170 of the items donated on our blog so you can browse them before the event. There are more items still to come.
