Amplify My Community and Amplify Decatur have had so many incredible supporters through the years, but none greater than Decatur Package Store.

On May 31 and June 1, they are hosting two very special events, which will do so much to help Amplify continue leveraging the universal love of music to fight homelessness at the local level.

Here’s a note from DPS owner, and our great supporter, Herb Chereck:


I’m happy to announce that our 2019 Van Winkle auction to benefit Amplify My Community will be happening at Decatur Package Store on Friday, May 31 at 9 a.m. and Saturday, June 1 at 9 a.m. Just in time for Father’s Day.

I didn’t receive enough product this year for a dinner, so the charity will be selling the items directly. I’ve listed the products below with their sales price. You’ll pay the charity directly, receive a donation letter, if you chose, and receive the product. Pretty simple and your karma will be off the charts!

Rules: Form an ORDERLY line at the store. Limit 1 bottle per customer. Any unsold bottles on Friday will be added to Saturday. Be nice – this is a charity event.

I’ve donated all the product to Amplify My Community, so 100% OF PROCEEDS will be given to Amplify My Community. 

I encourage you to learn about this local charity and the good they’re doing. Even if you don’t participate in the auction, you can still donate.

Thank you!

-Herb
