Why is it important to take part in the Silent Auction for NEAFCS?

Donating items, sharing details about the event online, and bidding all bring attention to the need for participation in the Silent Auction. All proceeds from the Silent Auction directly benefit NEAFCS members in the form of the Awards Program each year. The Awards Fund provides funds for the cost of the program, awards, certificates, scholarships, and more. Your participation in the Silent Auction helps secure the future of the Awards Program and the recognition of outstanding programming by your peers.
