In 2008 Yavapai Silent Witness received more than 1,300 phone calls that led to 224 felony arrests and paid out over $29,000 in cash rewards. We're on a roll and we need your help to continue going strong. Please help us make Yavapai County a safer place for all of us.
Yavapai Silent Witness, the premier Crime Prevention program in Yavapai County, is partnering with Batterman's Auction to raise money to offset rising costs to support this crime fighting program.
Batterman's Auction has agreed to take your donated valuables and auction them in their auction house at 400 W. Gurley St. (the old McIlvain Motors building) in Prescott and give Silent Witness as much as 90 percent of the sale amount. This is your chance to clean out the garage, get rid of that old car in the back yard or maybe even a collectible that you no longer have interest in. They also will take furniture, guns, working appliances and anything else you wish to get rid of that is of some value.
All you have to do is get the stuff to Batterman's and tell the nice folks at the back door that it's for Silent Witness and we'll do the rest including getting you a tax write-off.
