Ag Media Summit members came through in enchanting Albuquerque as $3,780 was raised through bidding on a huge array of beautiful and interesting items at the annual ARC-sponsored Silent Auction. And a big thank you to all ARC board members, each of whom contributed at least one item to the auction.
Funds raised through the auction are used to fund various youth programming of AMS, and are shared equally with ARC. This was the third year ARC collaborated with AMS on the Silent Auction.
“It was another great year and members enjoyed a variety of items in the auction,” says Den Gardner, executive director. “We can’t thank Amy McDonald and Barb Ulschmid for their tireless efforts to logistically handle the auction from start to finish. Another great job all around.”
ARC staff would like to thank all the ARC members who donated an item to the auction. There were more than 45 items to choose from this year. As the planning is already beginning for 2013 AMS in Buffalo, NY, we hope you can begin to think about items for next year.
Thanks again for everyone who helped with the auction.
