Smaller or unique items from your store or business. These items will be on display all weekend by the AOA booth for attendees to bid on.
Higher value items will be auctioned off live during the Banquet Dinner on Friday night or online in the Alpaca Alley Auction. Do you have a time-share you would be willing to donate? A weekend at a bed and breakfast? Herdsire breeding? Live alpaca?
The offerings at the Mazuri AOA National Alpaca Show presented by Flying Iron Ranch, Tierra Prometida Alpacas, and TXOLAN Alpaca Association will look a little different this year.
In an attempt to offer the best breedings to champion and future champion herdsires, as well as a few fabulous female alpacas, you will be able to bid at the Fundraiser Banquet and Auction sponsored by The Futurity by Celebrity Sales, live on Friday night and online at the Alpaca Alley Table Auction throughout the weekend.
This is AOA’s only fundraising event. If you have a Champion Herdsire or an up and coming Herdsire that you’d be willing to donate a breeding to, please contact the AOA office or complete the donation form below.
Seeking no more than five (5) animals for the live Banquet Auction. The auction is conveniently located at the facility this year.
To donate an animal, owners will send a short video of the alpaca walking toward them, away from them, showing a side view and an up close fleece shot.
Owners will also provide a histogram.
Additional live animals may be offered at the Alpaca Alley Table Auction. They do not need to have won a championship.
Owners offering alpacas for auction will get 40% of the sale and AOA will retain 60%. OR, owners can receive an Auction Sponsorship in lieu of taking a percentage of the sale.
Alpaca Alley Table Auction only alpacas will close Sunday morning at 9:30 a.m., enabling those who didn't win a bid at the Friday night auction to bid.
These animals will also be online, so those not attending the national show can bid.
Great question! Your animal and farm will be promoted on the website with a link to your website or Facebook. You can also link to your herdsire’s or donated alpaca’s page.
You will get promotion on the AOA Facebook page, Instagram page, and National Show page, separate from the auction website. If donating a live animal and forgoing the percentage split, you will gain the additional benefits listed in the Auction Sponsorship.
We can't thank you enough for your help. Let's make this the best auction yet!
