Tax Deductible Donations of Items for Auction Fundraiser

Get Aunt Mabel’s Victorian parasol out of your attic trunk or that ancient cupboard out of your
cellar and help preserve Wisconsin’s history!

The “30th Star Benefit Antiques Auction” has been such a roaring success, that FWHS has
decided to make it a biennial event.

Now is the time to immortalize your family name in the annals of Wisconsin’s history by the donation of vintage and antique items for the 2014 Auction.

All profits benefit the Wisconsin Historical Society, its Museum in Madison, and its 11 State Historic Sites.

Because the Wisconsin Historical Society is about preserving, understanding, and sharing history, a ‘Provenance Statement’ will accompany each object to auction, and the catalog will list the known history of each piece as well as the donor’s name, if desired. Tax deductible receipts will be provided.

For information about the April 26, 2014 “30th Star Benefit Antiques Auction” and the
April 25, 2014 Preview Party, or to make a donation of an antique or vintage item contact
either contact Riene Wells at 262.363.4700; or Debbie McArdle at

FWHS thanks the Wisconsin Antiques Dealers Association for their continued commitment as
the auction’s founding sponsors.
