ABEF Silent/Online Media Auctions
Donations are still needed for the ABEF Silent Auction and Online Auction at the 2013 Agri-Marketing Conference in Kansas City.
Find a home for that special edition wildlife print or even those sports tickets and surplus company logo jackets. Or give a media package or services and support the Agri-Business Educational Foundation (ABEF) at the same time. How? By contributing to the annual ABEF Silent Auction.
Any worthwhile product or service will be gratefully accepted. Some of the most popular items auctioned in past years include:
~ Framed and limited edition artwork
~ Media packages for broadcast, print & internet
~ Professional services
~ Premiums and wearables
~ Sports tickets and memorabilia
Please join your agri-marketing peers in supporting this worthwhile effort by donating to the auction. Click on the Pledge Form to indicate your donation and/or interest in the project.
Online Media Auction
The Online Auction begins April 3, 8:00 a.m. – April 9, 11:59 p.m. Bid on web-related donations, media packages and other services as part of its annual Silent Auction.
If a bid is received on an item within the last 30 minutes of the auction, the auction will remain open on that item through the next business day until 5:00 p.m. (central time). This process will continue until no bids are received within 30 minutes of the bid closing. If the bidding continues, the bidding on that item will stop at 5:00 p.m. on Monday, April 15 (even if bids are received during the last 30 minutes) and will continue on-site at the 2013 Agri-Marketing Conference in the Silent Auction area. Any media items not bid during the online media auction will be available for bidding on-site in the Silent Auction area as well.
Look for an email first thing Wednesday morning with information on how to participate.
The primary goal or mission of the Agri-Business Educational Foundation (ABEF) is to provide today’s agri-business students the tools they will need to succeed tomorrow. Visit http://www.nama.org/amc/auctions.html.
