Support the AONE Institute at the annual meeting!

Hey ya’ll!

The AONE Institute has something new in store for us this year: an online auction! That’s right—instead of holding a raffle at the AONE Annual Meeting in an effort to raise funds for its research seed grant program, the Institute will be embracing the digital age by launching its first online auction. The AONE Institute Online Auction, which will run from April 1-15, will offer AONE members (as well as their colleagues, friends and family!) an opportunity to bid on a wide array of valuable items, including a Mexican getaway in the heart of the Riviera Maya, four tickets to a Pacers basketball game to be held in Indianapolis on the night of April 10 (during the AONE Annual Meeting, of course), gift certificates to several major chain restaurants such as Capital Grille and Morton’s, and much, much more. Check the AONE website for a link to the auction website once it goes live on April 1.

You also won’t want to miss the AONE Institute’s Sunrise Breakfast on Sunday, April 11, where a gospel choir will perform a concert designed to inspire and move your soul. Tickets for the event will be available to purchase on site at the registration desk, and proceeds will also benefit the AONE Institute’s research seed grant program.

So spread the word and tell your colleagues about the 2010 AONE Institute Online Auction, and mark your calendars for the Sunrise Breakfast.

Interested in donating a tax-deductible item for the auction? Contact Sara Neuner at sneuner@aone.org. Not sure what to donate? Use your imagination! Popular items from the Institute’s raffles in past years include: iPods and other electronics, jewelry, vacation getaways, and handbags).

See you soon!

2010 AONE Board president
