The APME 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.   

Follow this link to the pledge form, 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.  

Please be creative and generous.  

Thank you,
Bobbie Jo Buel,
APME Foundation president
