Sale to benefit Audio-Reader

‘For Your Ears Only’ to offer used albums, tapes CDs and audio equipment
An impressive collection of used audio equipment and more than 10,000 albums, CDs and tapes will be for sale at Audio-Reader’s second annual “For Your Ears Only” benefit.

The fund raiser will be Sept. 24 and 25 in Buildings 1 and 2 at the Douglas County Fairgrounds, 19th and Harper streets.

A $5 donation is requested to attend the sneak preview from 6 to 10 p.m. Friday, Sept. 24. Admission is free from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 25.

“With most albums available for a $1 donation and CDs for $2, there are incredible bargains to be discovered,” said Janet Campbell, Audio-Reader director. “We also have quite a few turntables, videos and audio books. We’ve been told that this fund raiser is the largest event of its kind in Kansas.”

This year’s inventory includes donations from several private jazz collections, from Kansas Public Radio and from countless individuals in the Lawrence, Kansas City, Topeka and Pittsburg areas.

According to Audio-Reader staff and volunteers, this year’s inventory is more diverse, featuring the Beatles, the Rolling Stones, Harry James, Duke Ellington, Mozart, Vivaldi, Bob Dylan and Barbra Streisand. Musicals, movie soundtracks, laser discs and the entire “Twilight Zone” series on video also were donated for sale.

Proceeds from the “For Your Ears Only” sale will provide signal expansion and upgrade for the closed-circuit radio broadcasts heard by thousands of visually impaired persons who rely on Audio-Reader’s services.

Last year’s sale raised more than $10,000 and drew patrons from several states.
