Let your Association Shine in the Silent Auction

Participate in the Association Gift Basket Challenge and be entered to WIN an Amazon Echo Dot!

The FSAE Foundation will be holding our annual Silent Auction this year in conjunction with the FSAE Annual Conference, July 11-13, 2018. The Auction Committee thought it would be fun to involve Association members in a new creative way: the Association Gift Basket Challenge!

We are asking each association to donate a fun basket that is themed around your Association and industry! What better way to learn more about what we all do, than to see and bid on industry themed gift baskets! If your association has a "difficult-to-theme-for-a-basket" industry, you can always choose an alternative theme - Kids, Pets, Movie Night, Wine and Cheese, Super Heroes, Legos! Be creative - remember this is a challenge and there are fun rewards.

Each basket will be entered into a drawing for an Amazon Echo Dot.

Are your wheels turning? Here are some samples of baskets we have already received:
