May 2015 (Ammoland.com) – Liberty Ammunition, the global leader in high performance, lead-free ammunition for military, law enforcement and civilian markets, and Tacprogear (TPG), a leading manufacturer of tactical equipment used by professionals around the globe, will be participating in Average Hunter’s St. Jude Hat Auction. Each manufacturer has generously donated company branded hats to be auctioned off from May 1 through May 17, 2015, at www.stjude.averagehunter.com. All proceeds from the auctions will be sent directly to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital®.
“Every year I embark on a journey to do whatever I can to help others and to also invest in our future. I am a huge supporter of St. Jude and have put together this hat auction from companies within the outdoors industry to raise money for this worthy cause,” said Matt Staser, Average Outdoorsman.
He continued, “With tons of great support of many wonderful companies, like Liberty Ammunition and TPG, to name a few, we now have over 60 hat auctions that are now live. Every single penny raised will go directly to St. Jude.”
Each hat will be auctioned on its own page. At the bottom of the item’s page, bidders will find a standard comment section. To participate and place a bid, bidders will need to log in using a Facebook or Twitter account and leave a comment with the bid amount. When the auctions are over, the Average Hunter will contact the bid winners with a link to where they can send their funds directly to St. Jude. Once payment is secured, the item will be shipped to the bid winner. For more information on how the St. Jude Hat Auction works, please visit http://stjude.averagehunter.com/how-it-works/.
