2023 Silent Auction Seeking Donations

Posted By: James Landwehr Annual Conference,

The 2023 WLIA Annual Conference Silent Auction is now seeking donations! Every year the silent auction raises funds for the WLIA Foundation that are used to sponsor scholarships for students pursuing degrees in geography, geospatial sciences and GIS. This year WLIA is setting a new goal of $5,000 in hopes of awarding up to five $1,000 scholarships.

WLIA needs your help in obtaining donated items. In the past we’ve received items including:

  • Sports tickets and Memorabilia
  • Beer, Wine and Spirits
  • Locally Crafted Artwork
  • Hotel Stays
  • Books
  • Cheese and Sausage Gift Boxes
  • Gift Certificates for Restaurants and Shops
  • Movie Tickets
  • T-Shirts, sweatshirts, and other apparel
  • Coffee Gift Baskets
  • Yeti Mugs and/or Coolers
  • Fishing Equipment
  • Drones
  • GPS Receivers
  • iPads & Kindles
  • Woodworking Art
  • Experiences from other WLIA members

And much more…use your imagination!

Our auction items will be featured on display in the exhibit hall at the Annual Conference but can be donated using the link here. Just fill out the information, upload a picture or two and we’ll take care of the rest.

And, because we’re map geeks who think spatially, we can’t help but put together a map showing where donations came from last year.

So, let’s make the 2023 map busier with more dots. Help us reach our goal of $5000 this year and remember…

“It’s for the Kids!”
