EEGS Foundation Silent Auction
Once again, the Foundation will hold a Silent Auction at this year’s SAGEEP. Foundation leadership is seeking donors of items that can be sold to the highest bidder at the auction. All proceeds will benefit the EEGS Foundation. Contributions can include gift cards, works of art, professional services, electronics gadgets (e.g. iPhones, iPads, Kindles, GPS units, etc.) or other like items or services. Or, suggest something you have in mind - contact the Silent Auction Committee Chairman Douglas Laymon (firstname.lastname@example.org). Gifts can be made by individuals or organizations (talk to your employer!). The items can be mailed in advance to the EEGS Business Office (c/o Jackie Jacoby) or brought to the SAGEEP registration desk at the beginning of the conference. Details on contributing items and tax benefits can be found via this link: http://www.eegsfoundation.org/#!page4/cfvg.
You can also participate in the auction by purchasing one of these items, so come prepared with a check or credit card! Everything will be on display throughout the conference and winners will be announced in the Exhibit Area on Wednesday at the mid-morning break. Once the item is purchased, you can take it with you or have it shipped (postage will be at additional expense to the purchaser).
