Ford, Gittings, & Kane Annual Kickback to the Community Event
Date(s) – Aug 11 2021 until Aug 21 2021 10:00 am – 4:00 pm
Chieftains Museum has been selected to participate in the Annual Kickback to the Community with Ford, Gittings, & Kane Jewelers. Here is how this fundraiser works:
To participate in the silent auction at Ford, Gittings and Kane, you must have a bid card. Bid cards for the silent auction can be purchased for $10, of which Chieftains receives 100% from the bid card purchase. If an auction item is won by someone designating Chieftains as their 501 (c)(3), Chieftains receives 10% of the auction price.
The silent auction is scheduled to start August 11th and end at 2pm on August 21. Bids can be placed in person or by calling Ford, Gittings and Kane.
Bid Cards can be purchased at the museum, or at Ford, Gittings, & Kane. If you would like to sell bid cards for Chieftains, they can be picked up at Ford, Gittings, & Kane or from the museum.
Bid cards are $10 each and can be purchased with cash or check made payable to Friends of Chieftains.
Chieftains Museum/Major Ridge Home is a National Historic Landmark and one of only a few private entities to be certified by the National Park Service as a site on the Trail of Tears. Major Ridge, whose old home Chieftains now occupies, was one of the signers of the Treaty of New Echota, which resulted in the forced relocation of the Cherokee people.
