Help make the BBTS Auction a bit bigger and a 

bit more special this year. Please think of an item to contribute, or ask you favorite “high end” restaurant to contribute one $100 gift certificate. These are like “gold” for auctions and can be great for the restaurant. 


Is there something you could contribute to the auction from your line of work, a passion (ski tuning! sailing! water skiing! baking!), or your local restaurant scene? 


This year, we’re working hard to create a bigger impact with the auction bidders, donors, and the WVBBTS.  As of yesterday, we have 55 items and we know there are some great additions on the way (e.g. wine glasses etched with 8 different WV trail names).


Here’s more info, and I’d be delighted to connect with you live (in WV) or by phone whenever it’s convenient for you. 


1) Online Auction February 16-March 3. We have a page on our site ( with auction info and some donor promotion. The auction site itself ( has all the items, and the items can include links to donors’ web sites.



2) Cause Sales for Donors and the BBTS. We will put “offers” on our Cauzoom

Contribution to the WVBBTS!

page where shoppers can buy items or gift certificates/card knowing that a portion (15-20% is recommended) goes to WVBBTS. SportThoma, for example, has donated $500 worth of services and will have four offers that will include a 20% contribution to the BBTS. 


I would be delighted to talk to you or any business person who’s interested in the possibility of being featured in our promotional efforts from now until after the Auction.


Can we include something you could offer, or get?  That would be fantastic! Please call, email or talk to me soon!. 


Best regards,
