DONATIONS NEEDED FOR ASNE-APME CONFERENCE AUCTION
We need your help: APME and ASNE are combining forces for a live and silent auction to benefit both organizations during their joint conference Oct. 16-18 at Stanford University in Palo Alto, California.
Proceeds from the auction will fund journalism initiatives.
The live auction - featuring vacation getaways, sports tickets and more - will be held during the opening night reception at the Francis C. Arrillaga Alumni Center on the Stanford campus. A small silent auction with top items also will take place that night.
The larger silent auction - featuring donated books, regional gifts, jewelry, sports and event tickets and more - will be held during the conference at the Li Ka Shin Center, the conference headquarters on the Stanford campus.
How can you help now? We're looking for donations that will stand out.
To donate, please fill out the 2015 pledge form: download the pledge form. Email or mail to Kim Meader at firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you for any consideration to make this auction a grand success.
