Have you ever participated in a progressive dinner party? That is where guests go to the first home and eat appetizers. Then, they go to another home for a salad. Then they go to another home for the main course and yet another home for the desert. It’s a fun way to spend an evening dining with a group of your friends.
Another Attic Self Storage has taken this progressive dinner party ‘principle’ and is applying it to a charity storage unit auction that they will be holding this coming Friday June 29.
Another Attic has set aside a unit at each of their locations in Amarillo. That unit will be the collection point for donated goods. Local residents and businesses can donate items to the designated non-profit unit. (These items can be listed as a tax deduction so be sure to get a receipt.) Types of items being sold include building materials and supplies, new and used office furniture, and appliances.
The auction will start at 9:00 a.m. at the Tradewinds facility at 1500 S.E. 34th Ave. Chuck Clark, a local auctioneer, will be the auctioneer. Bidding will be for all of the items in the unit as ‘one package’ similarly as if bidding on a unit that has fallen behind in paying its rent.
When that unit has been sold, the auction will progress in succession to the other Another Attic locations throughout the morning. One hundred percent of the proceeds will go to charity. The charity partners include Charity Habitat for Humanity, Mission Amarillo, 7 Star Therapeutic Riding Center, Cub Scouts Pack 701, ACTS Community, Faith City Mission and America Supports You Texas.
This is the first charity auction that Another Attic has hosted. They plan on continuing this activity on a regular basis in the future.
If you live within the area, there is still time to donate items for the auction. Contact Justin Chick at 806-672-4001 or firstname.lastname@example.org. For more details about the auction, call 806-331-9999.
Another Attic has 9 storage facilities in the Texas Panhandle: 7 in Amarillo, and one each in Lubbock and Plainview. The locally owned and operated business opened its first facility in 1993 and wants to be “your place for space.”
