DENVER — The Colorado Disability Funding Committee is thrilled to partner with the Western Stock Show Association and the Colorado Auctioneers Foundation to auction the rights to use 13 unique Colorado license plate configurations.
Proceeds will fund grants for new and innovative ideas that improve the quality of life and independence of people with disabilities and contribute to the National Western Stock Show Scholarship Trust.
“Auctions are critical to both the success of the Colorado Disability Funding Committee and Colorado’s agricultural economy,” said Lt. Governor Dianne Primavera. “That’s why we’re thrilled to partner with the Western Stock Show Association to support these two great causes. Colorado’s Western roots run deep – show your Western pride with a unique license plate setup.
Auction and western themed license plate configurations include: AUCT10N, AUCT1ON, AUCTION, BID2WIN, HIGHBID, 10NOW20, HEIFER, BULL, CWBY UP, WLD WST and SPUR. Auction winners receive the exclusive right to use the configuration on their Colorado-registered vehicle.
The auction will take place in person at the National Western Beef Palace Auction Arena at 3:00 p.m. MST on Saturday, January 22, 2022 and will be available for online bidding at coauctioneers.com.
The committee raised over $100,000 in 2021 through sales of license plate configurations and awarded $40,000 in grants. The committee plans to hold frequent auctions in 2022 and offers grant opportunities as funding permits.
