The Auction is Back!
2018 AGA Tucson Gala

This exciting fund-raising event will be held during the evening of the prestigious AGA Gala Dinner on January 31, 2018.  We will be offering some very beautiful and unusual gemstones for the auction. We are also calling on the membership to look through your inventories to donate an unusual gemstone, jewelry item or a gemological instrument or an "object d'arte" for the auction. As the AGA is a non-profit organization, all of your donations may be tax deductible. Of course, we will not limit donations, or buyers, to AGA members - ALL ARE INVITED TO PARTICIPATE. Let's make it the best auction yet! In order to prepare the descriptions, etc. for the auction, we need to have your contributions by December 31st, 2017 - the last day of your 2017 tax year! Please contact AGA Secretary Raymond Mason via email or call 602.615.2116 to make your donations for this exciting event. I thank all of you in advance for your donations! - Raymond Mason, G.G., Secretary A.G.A.
