Charity Auction

"An investment in knowledge always pays the best interest." – Benjamin Franklin

Friday, November 1st @ 8pm

Rather than selling cattle, our auctioneer will be taking bids on items donated by attendee authors and corporate donors. During our Denim Celebration, wave your hat for a chance at experiences, collections and a few wild card surprises!

Those attending private dinners or gatherings will have time to join in the fun as we raise money for the Bouchercon 2019 official charity: Literacy Instruction For Texas (LIFT).

LIFT’s mission is to enhance lives and strengthen communities in the Dallas metroplex by teaching adults to read. Its outreach programs include a wide range of services from literacy classes to job interview preparation to money management. Our mission is to raise funds to support LIFT and make a meaningful impact in our community.
