2010 ISPA FOUNDATION LIVE & SILENT AUCTIONS
2010 Foundation Live & Silent Auctions
The ISPA Foundation holds its largest fundraiser each year at the annual ISPA Conference & Expo. Hundreds of donors and bidders participate in this event to help raise funds to advance the Foundation's initiatives, including the development of educational resources. In 2010, more than 200 items were donated to the Foundation's auctions and proceeds exceeded $70,000.
The auctions are a great way to make a tax deductible contribution to help promote a spa property, a new product line or market your brand, all while supporting a great cause.
Friends of the Foundation Auction
Once ISPA receives a donation (the actual item must be received), the donor and item description will be promoted on the ISPA Foundation Web site. All donations submitted prior to the earlybird deadline, June 11, were featured in the July Pulse magazine. Donations received prior to Sept. 21, were featured in the auction catalog provided to all Conference attendees.
Donations selected for the Live Auction event were promoted in Pulse and were heavily promoted at Conference (signage, handouts and some items were promoted on stage during the sessions). The items also received a great deal of attention during the Live Auction event hosted by a professional auctioneer.
