NAFA to hold silent auction at 2011 Institute & Expo
From now until 11 March, exhibitors may sign up to participate in the Silent Auction. Items for the auction will be on display at the exhibitor’s booth on Sunday 10 April 10 and Monday 11 April.
Bidding for the items will take place on Monday 11 April 11 between 11:00am and 2:00pm. The auction will officially close at 2:00pm at which time the highest bid on each bid sheet will be declared the winner.
There is no cost to participate in the Silent Auction. Exhibitors need only to fill out a simple form found online at http://www.nafainstitute.org/silentauction and agree to donate an item (or items) carrying a minimum value of $100 and maximum value of $500.
Revenue from the Silent Auction will go directly to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital to aid their mission of advancing cures, and means of prevention, for pediatric catastrophic diseases through research and treatment.
Thirty exhibitors took part in last year’s Silent Auction, which included prizes such as Apple iPads, Nintendo Wii game systems, tickets to NASCAR races, HD televisions, GPS systems, netbooks, and various gift certificates. Individuals will be bidding with their own money and not company funds, so exhibitors are encouraged to donate gifts they themselves would be interested in.
