Donations have begun rolling in for the WLIA Annual Conference Silent Auction. A couple of cool sports-related items that were delivered this week are this 2018 Packers team autograph embossed football and four tickets to a Lakeshore Chinooks minor league baseball game. There are lots more forthcoming, and we will be showcasing some of them as the conference date draws nearer. Last year the WLIA Foundation silent action raised over $3200.o0 toward scholarships for students pursuing degrees in Geography, GIS or Geospatial Studies. We hope to surpass that number this year!
The Silent Auction committee is still looking for donations, so if you have an item please contact, Jim Landwehr or Ann Barrett. And, remember that another good way to contribute to the WLIA Foundation is through Amazon Smile. Specify WLIA Foundation Inc. as the nonprofit that you’d like to support and Amazon will donate .5% of your purchases to the WLIA Foundation.
As always, “It’s for the kids!”
