The FRIENDS of the Wisconsin Historical Society are currently collecting tax-deductible donations of antiques and vintage items for their April 2018 “30th Star Benefit Antiques Auction” held at Old World Wisconsin in Eagle.

The inaugural auction, held in April 2010, was followed by three successful encores in April 2012, 2014, and 2016. Thus far the proceeds from the four biennial auctions have provided important funding for the Wisconsin Historical Society’s historic sites as well as for National History Day.

Though it is still months away, the “30th Star Benefit Antiques Auction” demands a great deal of advance preparation. Contributions of antiques (more than 99 years old) and vintage items (50-99 years old) will be gathered from across middle America. Tax-deductible receipts will be provided.

A fifth grant recently received from the Wisconsin Antiques Dealers Association (WADA) continues their commitment as the auction’s founding sponsors. The admissions charged at their October and February antiques shows in Waukesha fund their grant and scholarship programs. See www.WisconsinAntiquesDealers.com to learn more.

Carol Miller of Bailey’s Honor Auction Service in Oconomowoc has once again volunteered to call the auction. You can follow her many auctions throughout the year at www.BaileysHonor.com.

For questions about the April 2018 “30th Star Benefit Antiques Auction” or to make a donation of an antique or vintage item, please contact Riene Wells at 262-363-4700, info@eagle-house.com, or Debbie McArdle at 815-575-1272, jjmcard@comcast.net.
