On December 9, the Texas Auctioneers Association and America’s Auction Academy participated in the 2019 Holiday “Faux Auction” with the patients and their families at the Dallas Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children.TAA volunteers explain to each child how to bid on toys. Thank you to TAA President, Joel Lemley, Texas & International
Champion, Morgan Hopson and Texas Champion Ringman, Monica Higdon, for leading the way to auction items in this special format. Also thank you to Mike Jones, Scott Droddy, Philip Pierceall, Logan Thomas and “Santa “ Doug Bradford for filling in to help auction. Thank you to all the TAA volunteers who attended and made this event a terrific memory for these patients and their families. Texas Scottish
Rite provides the toys and a luncheon for the event and is a great charity partner to TAA. Doug Bradford dresses up as Santa and does special gifts to each child along with a hug. Thank you Santa Doug!

At this event, is when TAA presents their annual donation to help support their cause. This year we were able to give the largest donation to date of $11,250! A special thank you to generous donors: Nancy Manning, Lemons Auctioneers and all the TAA members who supported the TAA Annual Convention and Texas Lone Star Open where a percent of profits are designated. America’s Auction Academy also makes a generous donation on behalf of the school each year. Mike Jones and Lori Jones are dedicated supporters of this charity and this event.
