Foundation needs your help to make our annual auction a success. The auction
will be part of the opening night event at
October's APME conference in St. Petersburg, Fla.
We'll party at the Salvador Dali Museum on
Wednesday, Oct. 20. As always, auction proceeds will go to support APME
and valuable programs such as NewsTrain.
Right now we
need donors – editors and friends of APME who can donate items for the silent
and live auctions. We're looking for anything newspaper or Web-related such as
award-winning photos, umbrellas, signed comics and autographed books. Jewelry,
art, wine and other libations are always popular sellers. Sports tickets and
trips are big-ticket items that bring in the cash. A round of golf at a great
course or a weekend stay at a resort hotel would be wonderful donations.

which should be sent to Kim Meader of the Arizona Republic. Once you've made a
pledge, Kim will coordinate with you about where to mail the donation.
