The Florida Writers Foundation (FWF), a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization is seeking donations for the 2017 Silent Auction. FWF promotes literacy in children, youth and adults through various programs including sponsoring writing and poetry contests in schools, visiting elementary schools for reading days, and donating books to under-privileged schools. As the primary fund-raising event for FWF, the Silent Auction will be held in conjunction with the Florida Writers Association annual conference on October 19-22.
Each year, generous patrons contribute to the Silent Auction by making enticing donations that lure bidders to browse the displays. Past donations have included baskets filled with goodies and books, literary services, and tickets to entertainment venues. The Silent Auction also affords editors, agents and publishers an opportunity to inform the audience of writers about their services while donating to a worthy cause.
Donations can be made by October 1, 2017, through the following link: https://goo.gl/5Suig1 Please direct any questions about the Silent Auction to the chairperson, Susan Boyd, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
