A sample of this year’s items for 2013 auction!

*Two 50 minute music sets with Bob Recupero and Michael Corn within Addison and Chittenden Counties (outside these counties require additional traval expenses). Value: $600.00
More info about Bob Recupero and Michael Corn: Acoustic guitars, resonator, guitars, mandolin and vocals. Bob’s early musical interest was sparked by cowboy songs, gunfighter ballads, as well as singer-songwriters and rock & roll. A founding member of Downpour, he made his living playing professionally with that group from the early 70s into the mid 80s. From the lowland swamps of the Champlain Basin comes Michale Corn: wielding a half-dozen high-tension strings full of possibilities. A stroll down to the depression-era and half-way back, perhaps, an Irish air or the occasional ballad. An un-sung veteran of the Vermont scene, MC tries to kee low profile, but when he and Bob formed the duo at a fated, shared gig, they both knew the time was at hand. With mutual admiration and a chuckle at themselves, it works.

*Pampered Chef Pizza Party Set from Tara Bandy at Pampered Chef. Value: $60.00

*Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0

*Four ECHO Lake Aquarium and Science Center Day-passes. Value: $54.00
*Dakin Farm Gift Basket!
*Four benches from Tim McDowell; Vermont Made!


About The ALS Association Northern New England Chapter

The Mission of The ALS Association is clear: To lead the fight to treat and cure ALS through global research and nationwide advocacy, while also empowering people with Lou Gehrig’s Disease and their families to live fuller lives by providing them with compassionate care and support. Sponsorship and support efforts, like the silent auction at the Lake Champlain Maritime Festival enable our organization to accomplish two imperative goals, one being to support people living with ALS and improve their everyday lives, the other being to raise funds for both research and support. We work with volunteers, friends and families of patients, as well as corporations and businesses to reach and hopefully, surpass our fundraising goals.

About The 2013 ALS Silent Auction

The ALS Silent Auction takes place at the Lake Champlain Maritime Music Festival each year with one key goal in mind; to raise crucial funds that will directly benefit individuals living with ALS as well as crucial research. Monies raised are donated both to The ALS Association Northern New England Chapter, as well as Jim’s House, a house that was built by Jim Crevier, who passed from ALS in 2001, that is “available for people with Neurological Diseases, including ALS, and their care providers coming to Fletcher Allen Hospital in Burlington, Vermont from such a distance as to require an overnight stay”. To learn more about Jim’s House, please visit

  • All silent auction proceeds raised will benefit the VT Walk to Defeat ALS and Jim’s House
  • The VT ALS Walk will take place at the Dorset Park location in South Burlington VT on Sunday, September 23, Rain or Shine.
  • On September 22 at Killington, VT Heidi Smith has organized a team to raise ALS Awareness and funding thru the SPARTANS Race – a great way to test yourself and raise money in honor of Heidi’s husband Frank.

The rules are easy!

Stop by the ALS Tent at the Lake Champlain Maritime Festival any time and post your bid for the item of your choice. All bidding takes place suing your name, phone number or email address. The Auction goes on during the whole event – ending Sunday evening.

Last year, we were able to raise more than $3,000.00 through the silent auction and we aim to exceed but hopefully will match this figure for this year!  Last year we were able to donate $1,500.00 to the loan closet at our local chapter.
