Donate to PARS

The Pittsburgh Antique Radio Society accepts donations in many forms including direct monetary contributions, electronic equipment and related items brought to our auctions with PARS listed as the “seller”, and estate bequests. Please contact any PARS Officer or Board Member to discuss your donation.  While not strictly speaking a “donation”, the most direct way to support PARS is to become a member.

Our Story: Since 1968

Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry’s standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.
