Presidents Conference is around the corner, which means the Fifth Annual IFMA Educational Foundation Silent Auction is also coming up.
We need donations. Please complete this form to donate to the auction being held during Presidents Conference on Monday, Nov. 4, 2013 and support the future leaders of foodservice.
This event is one of the largest fundraising opportunities the Foundation has during the calendar year. But, it's only successful if we have items to auction off. So, if your marketing department has some branded swag, tickets to events, or incentive trips...please consider donating to our auction. As you may know, 100% of all money raised goes to funding scholarships for students in a foodservice or culinary tract.
If you are an operator partner, maybe you have gift cards or gift certificates you can donate? If you are a distributor partner, maybe you can offer free advertising space on your newsletter or marketing program? If you're an industry service provider, maybe you can donate a six-month or one-year subscription to your service?
The Educational Foundation trustees and our IFMA staff volunteers are a creative group of people. We can find ways to package almost anything you can donate, so please help us fund the educational expenses of the future leaders of our industry and donate something today.
On behalf of the IFMA Educational Foundation, it's trustees, and those students we have and will continue to help...thank you, and I hope to see you in Phoenix for the Presidents Conference and our Silent Auction.
