It's almost that time—the Federal Bar Association's Annual Meeting and Convention is upon us and this year it will be in Cleveland, Ohio, beginning on September 15, 2016! The Fellows of the Foundation of the Federal Bar Association will once again host a silent auction in conjunction with the FBA's convention. We're looking forward to building on the successes of the prior auctions, which have raised more than $50,000 for the Foundation over the years.
I write to encourage you to continue supporting the Foundation's good works by making a donation to this year's Silent Auction. We truly appreciate your support and thoughtful donations. In the past, we have received a wide variety of donations, including sports tickets and memorabilia, vacation homes, gift certificates, autographed novels, movie, and music items, artwork, and wine. We also encourage your local chapter to donate an item that is unique to your city or state.
The auction will open onsite on Thursday, September 15 and will close on Saturday, September 17 after the Awards Luncheon.
If you will be donating this year, please complete the Silent Auction Donation
