7th Annual TLT Harvest Auction

Now in its 7th year, Tecumseh Land Trust’s Harvest Auction has found a new, elegant home – The Hollenbeck Bayley Creative Arts and Conference Center. This brand new building in downtown Springfield is a beautiful venue for TLT’s auction – it’s largest fundraiser of the year, while also providing services and classes in the arts to the people of the Miami Valley.

Join Tecumseh Land Trust on Friday, September 30, 2011 at 6pm for a fantastic night out on the town. The event features a silent and live auction, live bluegrass music provided by WildWater, hearty appetizers from Current Cuisine, beverages, and desserts. There are 100 items in the silent auction and many are unique to this fundraiser including private walks and tours, local art and services, International gifts, home décor, farm fresh foods, and much more. Our live auction features a handmade quilt from the 1930s, a Persian rug from the 1930s, five solar panels including installation, Disney Theme Park tickets, a Colonial dinner for eight, a week stay at a S. Carolina beach house, and both Pioneer and Monsanto seed corn. The silent auction will proceed from 6-8:15 PM, and the Live auction will begin at 8:30 PM.
