As part of HAI HELI‑EXPO 2014, to be held in Anaheim, California, Helicopter Foundation International will again hold its Annual Fundraising Silent Auction. This year's auction promises to be bigger and better as it moves online with BiddingForGood, allowing it to reach thousands of potential aviation enthusiasts and bidders!
