NELLYSFORD, VA – A framed Bush Wood Country Club poster from the classic comedy Caddyshack signed by actor Michael “Noonan” O’Keefe, an embroidered army pennant collection, a Brett Favre-signed mini HOF helmet and a five-day African Safari for two are just a few of the many and diverse items up for grabs in a special second chance online auction that will close at 9:00 p.m. PDT, Friday, July 26.

The silent auction is presented through the special collaboration of Expo Auctions of Sugar Hill, Georgia, and the Association of Woodworking & Furnishing Suppliers (AWFS). Net proceeds will benefit the Woodwork Career Alliance of North America (WCA), a non-profit organization dedicated to developing and growing a skilled woodworking workforce. 

The second chance online auction comes fresh off the heels of the three-day auction held during the AWFS Fair last week in Las Vegas. In addition to many of the items that were displayed at the show last week, several new items have been added to the bid list.

Expo Auctions’ treasure trove of interesting and curious auction items includes an assortment of popular sports, entertainment and historical collectables, VIP trips; and wine and spirit packages.

“AWFS is pleased to support the Woodwork Career Alliance and its efforts to strengthen and develop skill standards and a skilled workforce for our industry,” said Adria Salvatore, AWFS education and conference director. “We hope to raise funds from this auction so that WCA can help expand school programs, allow more students and professional woodworkers to earn their skill credentials, and provide more resources for teachers to connect with our industry.”

“AWFS has been a fantastic supporter of the Woodwork Career Alliance over the years,” said Scott Nelson, WCA president. “We deeply appreciate that the WCA has been designated to receive the net proceeds of this fun fundraising program. As a not-for-profit organization, we greatly appreciate this support to us connect with more schools and woodworking companies to develop the next generation of skilled woodworkers.”
