AGRSS® Council Auction List Grows
July 21, 2011

The Automotive Glass Replacement Safety Standards (AGRSS) Council Inc. has lined up several innovative items for its  annual charity auction, which will be held on Thursday, September 15, as part of the inaugural Auto Glass Week™ event in Memphis, Tenn.

This year, the group will again auction off the popular fishing trip with Sika Corp. global resources marketing manager Carl Tompkins in his home state of Washington; a poster signed by Olympic champion Michael Phelps; a football signed by the Chicago Bears’ Brian Urlacher; tickets to see the Chicago Cubs; and several industry tools, such as the Delta Kits Inc. headlight restoration kit and the Extractor’s Green Hornet removal tool.

The annual auction will be held at 6:30 at the end of the first full day of the week’s events and will be held in conjunction with a cocktail party on the exhibit floor.

Those who wish to donate items to the auction, which in the past has included popular items such as sports tickets, iPods, and the popular fishing trip with Sika’s Carl Tompkins in Spokane, Wash., may do so by contacting Jean Pero of Mygrant Glass, who chairs the annual event.

Auto Glass Week will bring together all of the major auto glass groups, including the Auto Glass Replacement Safety Standards Council (AGRSS), Independent Glass Association (IGA), National Glass Association (NGA), and the National Windshield Repair Association (NWRA), along with AGRR™magazine’s Pilkington Clear Advantage Auto Glass Technician Olympics and Walt Gorman Memorial Windshield Repair Olympics. The International Window Film Tint-Off and Conference™ also will be held concurrently. The event is managed by AGRR magazine.

Online registration is now open; and pre-registration runs through September 2.
