Remember that the auction is not just an enjoyable social event—each year proceeds from the auction provide funding for additional undergraduate and graduate student travel awards. Last year, the auction made $5,500 and these funds will be used in their entirety to support student travel awards to the 2018 AAPA meetings!  

 

If we know of items in advance, particularly “big ticket” items, we will advertise them on the AAPA website so that our members can save their pennies! The auction is held Thursday evening and donations are TAX DEDUCTIBLE!

 

To Donate: Please contact Drs. Valerie DeLeon (vdeleon@ufl.edu), Myra Laird (lairdm@uchicago.edu), or Jon Bethard (jbethard@usf.edu).
