2017 Western/Northeast Section Meeting

Silent Auction for Section Scholarships

Now Collecting Donations!

As in past years, the Western and Northeast Section meeting will include a silent auction on Sunday, April 2 for which we are currently requesting donations. All funds raised will go to the travel award scholarship. We are always looking for School and Institution logoed attire or items. A popular item at recent meetings has been a group basket that includes a variety of items showcasing your local chapter or the area where your institution resides. As well, we are asking artists of all types to consider making a donation of their handmade treasures to the SRA International showcase. Your item will be on display so that all attendees can see your hidden talents and make a bid during the silent auction at the meeting’s opening reception. We are also happy to accept donations of purchased items or gift cards from nationwide retail and food chains. If you would like to make a donation, please send an email to elibao1@jhu.edu, along with your name, contact information, the type of item you will be donating (i.e., necklace, wood wine holder, etc.) and the approximate value. Be sure to remember to bring your item with you to the meeting in Honolulu, HI!
