Few tickets remain for Autism Awareness auction

Few tickets remain for Autism Awareness auctionOrganizers of the upcoming April 6 Ridgecrest Autism Aware-ness Auction are excited that they will have Wallace Martin, well-known local auctioneer, using his gavel on the auction block that night.

“We have only five tickets left for the auction,” said Cherish Rindt, auction organizer. “Community businesses, individuals and organizations have been very generous with wonderful auction items and other support.”`

For more than a decade, W. T. Martin Auctions has served the Indian Wells Valley conducting a wide variety of auctions including estate, business and charity auctions including the Rotary Club, the China Lake Museum Foundation, the Maturango Museum, Hospice and many others.

For major charity auctions, Martin has created a unique format that combines humor, customized music and sound effects for a fast-paced, entertaining and high-energy fun evening. This is a father-and- son team, with Matthew Martin perfecting the technical audiovisual elements of the show and recording memorable songs to fit the themes of auction items. Songs and special effects are digitally recorded and played back throughout the evening with split-second accuracy.

The Martin team will keep you laughing and bidding for an excellent cause. Wallace was professionally trained at the Western College of Auctioneering in Billings Mont., and puts on one heck of a show. For more information, see wtmartin
