The Highpointers Foundation has launched a Silent Auction capability on their website so check it out!!!
The first Silent Auction ended at the NJ-09 convention with $500 being raised when Frank Ashley’s “US State Highpoints” signed guidebook was auctioned.
This particular Silent Auction is being held from October 1st, 2009 thru Friday, December 18th at 6 p.m. EDT.
The featured item this quarter is an original, signed, “Sir Edmund Hillary – Nothing Venture – Nothing Win Autobiography” that was published in 1975.
Sir Edmund Hillary passed away 2008 so this is a rare opportunity to score a signed copy of his autobiography. This special item was donated for auction by Highpointer Penn Watson and can only be seen in the libraries of a few venerable alpinists.
