Online & Silent Auction to
Benefit Scholarship Fund
Online and Silent Auction: Using the services of the leading charity online auction company, BiddingforGood.com, the Education Board will conduct an online auction featuring various items donated by members and others interested in supporting this worthy cause. Heading the auction fund raising effort will be Ann Marie Cox, a member of the Education Board who invites all members and interested parties to donate auction items by May 15th.
“Our online auction is seeking items such as timeshares, vacation homes rentals, sports memorabilia, wine, travel vouchers and similar items. The items donated will be described online in detail and anyone with Internet access will be able to bid when we go live in late June,” Cox explained. Cox noted that because AACE International is a 501-c-3 organization, most donations will be eligible to be considered a charitable contribution depending upon the individual’s unique tax situation. Individuals should consult their tax adviser for details.
AACE International will notify its membership and stakeholders regarding items available as the online auction launch date of approaches. Approximately 20 items will also be available for a silent auction to be held in conjunction with Annual Meeting July 8-11 in San Antonio, TX. The silent auction will use the last online bid for the item as the starting bid and will close at 8:00 pm on Tuesday, July 10 during the Tuesday Night Toast.
