Thanks to the generosity of our attendees, 490 pounds of food and $28 were donated to support the work of the Atlanta Community Food Bank, providing 520 meals to children, seniors and families in need. That spirit of giving didn't stop there-when Lori K. Spear, CAE, accepted the 2015 Cliff Clarke Award, she took that opportunity to encourage attendees to donate to Toys for Tots, raising more than $700 for the charity in less than 15 minutes! The Holiday Silent Auction raised more than $9,700 to help support the high level, quality programming we all enjoy at our meetings and conferences. In 2015, the silent auction committee produced 137 donations and raised more than $19,200! A huge thank to you committee co-chairs Carol Hall and Karla Yeck, along with the entire Silent Auction Committee and everyone who bid at either of our auctions! 24 Winter 2016
