The Highpointers Foundation will silent auction our 19th book since 2009!

This particular Silent Auction is being held from August 2016 thru January 31st 2017 at 6 p.m. EDT.

The featured item this quarter is a signed copy of the fabled Seven Years in Tibet by the late Heinrich Harrer. A similar book went in 2010 for several hundred Dollars. Good condition. Current bid price is at $350. Two weeks to go !


Get more information from The Foundation at:

Their Home Page at and click on the Fundraising button at the top of the page.

Their Fund Raising Page at and then click to the Silent Auction Page prominently displayed as a link.

Fill out the Bid form, and submit a bid. Bids must be at least $20 higher than the current high bid.

All bid activity will be updated daily, but is not instantaneous. The amount of the donation above and beyond the value of the book from the winning bidder is tax deductible so please consult your tax professional.

The proceeds will help to benefit projects that The Foundation is working on. Plans are to offer a new item each quarter going forward. Donors can specify if they would like to have their $ benefit a specific state highpoint, or just to be used in general where need is greatest.

The website is now capable of accepting PayPal or VISA donations.

So tempted.

Last night, I asked my wife (who does the bills) if it would be OK to make a bid and got the thumbs down. Something about food for the kids or some such thing. sad.gif
