Dear Friends,
A very sincere and warm welcome to A Night in the
Old West, the theme for the 21st Annual Oaklawn
Benefit Auction. We hope you enjoy your adventure to the western frontier as you search for unique
treasures and friendships old and new. We are very
pleased with the bid packages you will find in this
book and warmed by the support of our donors who
made it all possible. While most of this year’s event
will cover territory familiar to Auction veterans, in
the spirit of exploration, we believe the time is right
to introduce a couple of new things.
Most noticeably, bids will be placed on computer
terminals or your own PDA instead of on paper. The
details of this are explained on the pages that follow
but in short, we are encouraged that this will allow
us to streamline our checkout process. This system
is simple and user-friendly, created and refined by
a college in Illinois that has a very similar benefit
auction. For our valued patrons who would prefer a
more personal touch, 28 members of Marshall High
School’s chapter of the National Honor Society have
volunteered to lend a hand to enter bids throughout
the night. We are grateful for their willingness to
help us all explore this new frontier.
With our shift to electronic bidding all Silent Auction items will be grouped into one event instead of
three as we’ve had in recent years. This change will
allow us the luxury of having some additional time
to hold the first ever Oaklawn Wine Pull. These
details follow and we extend many thanks to our
donors who reached deep into their personal cellars
to help ensure this new event’s success.
The Auction would not be possible without the enthusiastic in­volvement of the many volunteers who
give countless hours of their time and talents. We
express our sincere appreciation to them for insuring
the success of this event. In addi­tion, we would like
to extend our deep and sincere thanks to the wonderful donors listed throughout the catalog. They too
have given generously and graciously. Please support them. The Auction – like Oaklawn Hospital –
truly reflects a community effort, and we’re grate­ful
to all of you.
Enjoy the evening and again, THANK YOU for your
participation and support of our wonderful community hospital.

The Silent Auction
All Silent Auction treasures are displayed
for viewing and for bidding, which starts
at 6:30 p.m. and continues until 8:30.
New this Year: Paperless Bidding
1. To help ease the checkout process, all bids
will be placed at computer terminals available
throughout the facility or on patrons’ own
PDAs. Bid entry is simple and user-friendly
and special features will allow bidders to easily
monitor the progress of multiple items.
Bids for any item may be placed at any terminal.
The progress of a single or multiple items may
also be tracked from any terminal. Just like on
ebay, it’s possible that many people may be
bidding on the same item simultaneously.
2. Twenty eight members of the National
Honors Society at Marshall High School have
volunteered to be on hand to answer questions
or place your bids.
3. Silent Auction bidding will end promptly at
8:30.
4. Since bidding will not be possible after the
auction closes bidders will want to be sure to bid
like a cowboy in the waning moments. Slow
pokes will be left behind.
5. After payment has been made and a receipt
issued, Committee Members will assist winners
in claiming their purchases.
Last Chance Auction
Have you ever come to the end of the Si­lent
Auction only to just miss out on that some­thing
special and wish you could have one more bid?
Your wish has come true.
Here’s how Last Chance works:
1. Eleven items will be up for bid. Silent
bidding will occur using secret bid slips
and a sealed box with a slot in the top.
2. Write your name, bid number, and a
strategi­cally calculated, highly secret bid
amount on the slip and place it in the box.
AU C T I O N I N F O R MAT I O N
3. There’s no limit to how many secret bids
you can enter. If you fear that your bid
isn’t high enough, just fill out another slip
with a higher amount and place it in the
box.
4. Bidding closes at 8:45. However,
committee members will allow ad­
ditional bids to be placed in the box
if two or more people are ac­tively
bidding. Once the box is in the hands of
a committee member no more bids may
be placed.
The Live Auction
The Live Auction begins at approximately 9:00
p.m. and continues without interruption until
all items have been sold. Live Auction items
may be viewed starting at 6:30 p.m. To enter a
bid during the Live Auction, the bid­der simply
needs to raise his/her program, with the back of
the program facing the auctioneer, so that the
bidder number shows, signaling the auctioneer’s
attention. The bid should be made promptly.
The high bidder will be acknowledged by the
auctioneer.
Raffles
At this year’s auction we will be holding two
distinctly different raffles. The first raffle,
sponsored by HBC Contracting, will be our
traditional “Buy raffle tickets, get a sticker”
raffle conducted by ticket sellers walking amid
the auction crowd throughout the evening.
The prize will be a 42” VIZIO television and a
BluRay/DVD.
Tickets will be sold only at the auction at a cost
of $5.00 each or five tickets for $20. Ticket sales
will stop at the beginning of the Live Auction,
with the drawing for the winning ticket held at
the completion of the Live Auction. The holder
of the winning ticket does NOT have to be
present to win.
AU C T I O N I N F O R MAT I O N
The second raffle this year is the “sand scoop”
raffle. Staffed by Judy Byam and her astound­ing
crew of volunteers, with their assistance you get
to pan for gold in the sand! Be a 49er with your
purchase of one scoop for $10 or three scoops
for $20. After your scoops have been made, the
contents of each scoop will be sifted until the
sand is gone and the nuggets remain. For each
nugget that you have scooped, you will receive
one raffle ticket. There are three raffle prizes for
this year’s event.
1) Keurig Gourmet Single Cup Home Brewing System Donor: Dr. Tom Neidlinger
2) Nook Color Donor: Kellogg Community
Credit Union
3) Four infield box seats to a Detroit Tigers
baseball game of choice Donor: Harley Ellis
Devereaux
You may drop your tickets entirely into one
raffle prize jar or you may divide them into any
(or all) of the three prize jars. You may put them
into the jars at once, or use a little “raffle strategy” and come back periodically throughout the
night (but before the drawing!) and place them
in the appropriate jar, thereby utilizing a ticket
layering technique. The draw­ings for the three
prizes will be held at the beginning of the Live
Auction. Winners must be present to win.
New this Year: Wine Pull
Various donors have contributed bottles of wine
with a value of at least $10.00, on up to some
of very special heritage. Selections will be on
display in sleeves to mask their identity. For $20 per choice, guests may select bottles
throughout the evening, which will be held
at the Wine Pull Station until 8:55. At that
point, participants will reveal their choices to
see how their investment paid off. A chart at the
station will indicate the estimated value of each
selection.

This Catalog
Once again the generous outpouring of support
and the contributions from our faithful donors
has made this amazing array of goods possible.
Read carefully, plan your bidding wisely and let
the round up begin.
Attack it like a cowboy and as always, a
lighthearted approach helps!
A final note on the author…
Our sincere thanks goes out to Terry Lake, a man
with true grit, for his extreme generosity and
countless volunteer hours of authoring and
arranging this catalog. Be sure and send a mighty
“Yee Haw” in his direction when you’re sitting at
home and some of that High Plains humor finally
hits the funny bone. The good ones can take a
while sometimes.

84 Raku Workshop for Four
$180
Raku-yaki or Raku ware, is a type of Japanese
pottery that is traditionally and primarily used
in the Japanese tea ceremony in Japan, most
often in the form of tea bowls. It is traditionally characterized by hand-molding of the clay
as opposed to turning it on a potter’s wheel,
resulting in each piece being “one-of-a-kind”;
low firing temperatures (resulting in a fairly
porous body); lead glazes; and the removal of
pieces from the kiln while still glowing hot.
In the traditional Japanese firing process, the
fired Raku piece is removed from the hot kiln
and put directly into water or allowed to cool
in the open air. Raku techniques have been
adopted and modified by contemporary potters
worldwide. A Raku workshop for Four will
teach you this and more with a “hands-on”
experience you’ll never forget.

211 Antique Pie Crust Table
$200
The Cowboy Dictionary lists a “Boggy Top”
as a pie baked without a top crust. We offer
an antique pie crust table with a pedestal base
and a rich black cherry finish. Not sure what a
pie crust table is? It’s a type of pedestal table,
usually on three legs, with a round top trimmed
with a raised, scalloped edge (like the crimped
rim of a pie crust); either carved or molded,
the top often tilts up, making for easy storage
against a wall; developed in the 18th century,
it was typically used for serving tea or coffee;

the top. As a freshman at Marshall High School in
1973, I was asked to donate lunch money in a effort
to keep our local hospital. As a much older man
with a sophomoric wit I now appeal to you to once
again support the supports that need our support.
Huh? You know what I mean....buy these columns
and support Oaklawn! They were added to the hospital in 1973 during the “Decision Now” campaign,
which was for $1.5 million dollars in improvements
that the state required in order to maintain a license
to operate as a full service hospital. (The original
1953 “new hospital” cost $700,000, and did not
have a covered porch.) Local delivery is included
in the purchase. Would make some sweet hitching
posts, don’t you think?
