Auctioneers and friends have organized to support one of their own.
“A benefit auction is planned for Tom Lindsay Jr. and his wife, Karen, to assist with unfortunate legal expenses which have arisen,” announced Dave Webb, auctioneer at Stilwell, who has been instrumental in its coordination.
Featuring a wide array of consignments donated by friends and many members of the Kansas Auctioneers Association (KAA), the auction is set for Sunday, Nov. 17, starting at 2 o’clock at the Johnson County Fairgrounds in Gardner.
Lindsay and his dad, Tom Lindsay Sr., are lifetime auctioneers headquartered at Shawnee, having served in numerous leadership roles among state and national auction groups.
Webb, a past president of the KAA, explained, “We have been friends and acquaintances of the Lindsay family for many years. They have been great ambassadors for the auction profession. This auction arranged and conducted by friends of the Lindsay family is to provide some additional funds, support and love for them. Please bring your items for the auction that day.
“There will be many auctioneers on hand to assist in selling and working the ring. This is a volunteer event, and we encourage you to participate,” Webb welcomed.
Information and questions about donating and purchasing sale items can be directed to Webb at 913-681-8600, or e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
