Please consider donating an item for our silent and/or live auction at this years fall conference in September, 2012.->
Dear Indiana CRS Members,
We are excited to be raising money for Riley Hospital for Children once again at our IAR Fall Conference and Expo on September 18- 20, 2013, at the Indianapolis Sheraton Hotel, Keystone at the Crossing.
As you know, Riley Hospital for Children in Indianapolis, IN promises never to turn a child away due to a family’s inability to pay.
This year we’d like to ask you for your help and support to make our silent and live auctions extremely successful.
Please consider the following items when thinking about what you might donate.
- Local Bed & Breakfasts one or two night stays (a great way to help them increase business is to offer a discount for additional nights)
- Concert Tickets
- Sporting Tickets (Do you have season tickets you are unable to use?)
- Wine Tours
- Dinners (with a local celebrity or personality)
- Marketing Opportunities in your area
- Gift Certificates to your favorite restaurants
**Please have all gift certificates dated with a one year expiration of September 19, 2014**
Remember, if there is an item you’d like to purchase, ask your local donor for that item and if it sells over value it’s a WIN for Riley Hospital for Children. And if you happen to get it for a bargain, it’s a WIN for you AND Riley Hospital for Children.
Please bring your business cards along with you, as we would gladly allow you to place your business cards next to your generous donation.
If your item is selected to be in our live auction, we will announce your gift and name from our stage.
Please email a digital photo of the item you are donating in advance to firstname.lastname@example.org by 9/2/13 so we can display the photos with bid sheets in the IAR registration area. Deliver your donation to the Sheraton on Wednesday morning 9/18/13 or, to sendthe item in advance of the conference, please mail by September 2nd to:
