Affinity Plus Foundation to Host 10th Annual Silent Auction for Financial Literacy
ST. PAUL, Minn. --(Business Wire)--
Since 2000, the Affinity
Plus Foundation has been committed to providing sound personal
financial education to people throughout Minnesota. Once again, the
Foundation will be hosting its annual Silent
Auction, from Nov. 9-13. With more than 300 baskets to bid on, the
Foundation hopes to raise more than $20,000 for financial literacy
education, including the Affinity Plus Foundation Scholarship and other
educational programs throughout the state.
With more than $40,000 worth of items to bid on, the Silent Auction is a
great opportunity to shop for holiday gifts, such as iPads and other
electronics, game tickets, spa certificates, hotel stays and more.
Bidding takes place online at http://auctions.readysetauction.com/affinityplusfederalc/
or in any branch location, and anyone can participate. Bidding will open
at 9 a.m. Central Standard Time on Nov. 9, with the closing bid at 8
p.m. on Nov. 13.
"The Affinity Plus Foundation Silent Auction is always one of the
highlights for our Foundation each year. Through this auction we have
raised more than $100,000. This event is an incredible opportunity to
bring members, employees, and the community together to have some fun
while promoting the Foundation and increasing awareness of financial
education across the state. As we say with the auction each year, bid
early, bid often and have some fun," states Dave Larson, executive
director of the Affinity Plus Foundation.
The Affinity Plus Foundation is dedicated to bettering the quality of
life through financial literacy--helping people before debt
becomes a problem. The Foundation is funded by the ongoing support of
members, employees, vendors and partners. In addition to the Silent
Auction, an annual Fishing Tournament is held each summer. Visit https://www.affinityplus.org/foundation
