The WLIA Foundation has begun seeking items for the Silent Auction held at the Annual Conference in Middleton this February, 19-21st.
Every year the auction is held during the conference and 100% of the funds raised go toward higher education scholarships for students pursuing degrees in Geography, GIS and Geospatial Studies. Past years have enabled WLIA to provide three to four $1000 scholarships to students chosen from a pool of applicants. Donated items can include, sports tickets, wine and cheese gift baskets, coffee shop gift cards, books, games, beer, chocolate, electronics and more. If you have a donation, there is a new on-line form you can fill out so we can easily inventory the items here. Contact Jim Landwehr or, Ann Barrett if you have any questions on what can be donated or how to get it to the conference. We’re hoping to make the 2020 Silent Auction the best yet! Thanks for anything you can do.
Remember, “It’s for the kids!”
