Unto the gifted artisans of the Knowne World, Greetings!

We are seeking artists from all Kingdoms to 
participate in a fundraising auction to benefit 
the Society at large. In these troubled financial 
times the Kingdom of the East will host an 
ambitious fundraiser during the Great Pennsic 
War. It is to be a magnificent gala and art 
auction featuring the most ambitious work you 
would be willing to donate to this worthy cause. 
The date and time has yet to be decided but it 
will definitely take place after the Pennsic arts 
and sciences exhibit so you will still be able to display them to the populace.

Donated items will be completed pieces only. 
Works in progress or promissories will not be 
accepted due to the large geographic area 
represented by the populace. Per state and 
Federal Law, alcohol will not be allowed to be 
auctioned but have no fear brewers and vintners! 
We will gladly accept donations of drink (and 
food from the cooks) to refresh the guests and 
lubricate their
wallets. If we have too many 
pieces to auction in one evening, we reserve the 
right to put smaller pieces into a Chinese 
auction which will allow greater proceeds through the sale of raffle tickets.

The proceeds will be divided thusly. Each artist 
will declare for their own Kingdom. A record will 
be kept of the amount each piece sells for (or 
the amount earned by raffle tickets). Half of the 
proceeds from each piece will go to the artist's 
Kingdom and half will go to Society Corporate. 
The use of your Kingdom's portion will be decided 
entirely by your Majesties and their officers.

Start planning now! Attempt a work that will be 
renowned as being the most sought after piece of 
the year! This should be a great event and a 
wonderful chance to raise funds for our Society. 
Please contact us if you are interested in 
participating and we will send you a registry 
form or answer any questions you might have.

Yours in Service,
Mistress Carolyne de LaPointe and
Master Julien de LaPointe
