Not a Silent/Live Auction Event
ASFPM Foundation has historically hosted the Silent Auction, as well as the Donor Appreciation Reception with Live Auction, as part of the ASFPM Annual National Conference. That's NOT happening this year. This year we are holding this Not a Silent/Live Auction Event. 

We recognize that many of you look forward to the Silent Auction and Live Auction events. We do too. Frankly the two events are important to our ability to fund our mission. We enjoy being able to have fun and show appreciation to our donors by hosting the in-person events. This year we're again taking a break since since large in-person events are still not an option for most people. And we look forward to hosting a Live Auction again at next year's conference in Orlando.

Without further ado, here's Jeff Sparrow, ASFPM Foundation Fundraising Committee Chair, who would like to say a few words:

Location: Your Couch

You cannot join us no matter where you are. Drinks and hors d'oeuvres will not be served starting around 7pm, and no one will take the microphone to give speeches at 7:30pm.

In case you're confused:

neutral What?! Is there an auction or not? neutral

No. There is no silent or live auction this year. But we hope that people still choose to be generous even without one! 

Here are some suggested donations:
  • Instead of the Hurricane Glass bead donation, give $10
  • If you're an introvert who is relieved not to have to make small talk at a social event, consider giving $25 (or more depending on how relieved you are)
  • If you've previously donated items to the Silent Auction, give $35
  • If you've bid on items for the Silent Auction, give $50
  • If you've bid on bourbon at the auctions, give $75
  • If you usually purchase a ticket to the Donor Appreciation Reception and Live Auction, give $100
  • Instead of bidding on a Live Auction item, give $250
  • Instead of wracking your brains to come up with a package to donate for the Live Auction, why not give $1,000?
  • Or consider giving a portion of what you would normally have spent on airfare, hotel, dinners or drinks
The great news is that because we don't have to pay for space or to serve our guests food and beverages, 100% of the donations will go directly to Foundation activities, like the Future Leaders Scholarship, Student Paper Competition, RISE Challenge (formerly the Rocky Mountain Environmental Challenge) and the Urban Flooding Summit to name a few.

Please share this invitation with friends and colleagues. And share or retweet our social media posts about this event as well.

Thank you all for your continued support of ASFPM Foundation and its activities and we look forward to meeting in person in Orlando next year.
