> GSAE news & events Annual Meeting Attendees Support GSAE & Local Athens Charity Thanks so much to our Silent Auction donors and winners who helped us raise $12,155 to support GSAE's educational programming. Wednesday afternoon's Beer Tastings and Friday's live auction raised $2,549 for the GSAE Foundation. Thank you to our beer aficionados Mike Pennington, CAE, Russ Webb and Lowell Aplebaum, CAE for hosting the craft beer tastings. Your generosity also helped us raise more than $3,200 to support the good work of Bread for Life through the 4th Annual GSAE 3K Fun Run/Walk and the Pay the Pig Raffle. Thanks to our T-shirt sponsor, the James H. Rainwater Conference Center, all proceeds from the Fun Run directly benefitted Bread for Life.
