    I have a couple items that I’d be willing to donate for the auction to benefit Black Point:

    a mahogany music cabinet (for sheet music, not recordings) from early 1900s

    a Regulator-type, keywound wall clock circa 1900.

    These are in original condition, have not been restored or modified in any way as far as I’m aware. I live in Chicago metro area and these items are here at my home in Illinois, but if you want them, I could deliver them to a location in SE Wisconsin in the next week.
