With the APOS 2014 Annual Conference just around the corner, we are gathering items for our silent auction. So far we have a fabulous stay in the Dominican Republic (see details), a Kindle Fire, dinner for two at IL Terrazzo in the Tampa Marriott Waterside, A gift baskets and handmade items, just to name a few.
We are fortunate to have the villa in the Dominican Republic as an item to bid on. If you are planning on bidding on this or other “Big Ticket” items, please be prepared to pay when the bidding closes. So round up some friends who are interested in a week in the DR and get their money up front!
We also have several books donated by the authors who will autograph it for you after it is purchased. If you are trying to think of something to donate, gift cards are easy to pack and always welcome, as well as jewelry and homemade items. Since most people fly, anything that can fit in a bag is welcomed. Wine has been a big seller in years past…sometimes it doesn’t make it home, but is enjoyed at the conference. When you are buying holiday gifts, buy an extra one to donate. You can also re-gift to APOS.
Bidding will start at the Opening Reception on Thursday, 13 February 2014 and end at 4:00 pm on Friday, 14 February 2014.
Keep your eye out for a bargain that you can contribute to the auction. It’s lots of fun to outbid your colleagues while adding money to fund the APOS programs. Your donation is tax deductible - just ask for a receipt. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for silent auction information.
