The noted auction service iGavel, under the baton of Antiques Roadshow's Lark Mason, is hosting the online auction with exciting jazz collectibles, autographed instruments, a ragtime wedding band, private home concerts and more. Auctioneers generally make their money by charging a premium to both buyer and seller. A special thanks to Lark Mason who has forgone the seller's premium to help our program, so almost all proceeds go straight to the campers.
Auction Ends Wednesday, August 15 at noon.
