Fourth Annual Online Silent Auction
Helicopter Foundation International’s annual Fundraising Online Silent Auction, which was conducted through BiddingForGood, opened online February 17, and opened onsite at HELI-EXPO® on Monday, March 2nd, in the Orange County Convention Center.
The auction provided participants the opportunity to win some terrific prizes. This year’s auction featured 60 items up for bid. The offerings consisted of a wide mix of items, including some related to the helicopter industry and many items of interest to all. The auction concluded at 4:00 p.m. on Thursday, March 5, at the close of HAI HELI-EXPO 2015. HFI raised over $17,000. Participating donors and bidder’s helped support HFI’s mission to educate the next generation of pilots and maintenance technicians, and its commitment to preserve helicopter history.
Auction proceeds help support the HFI Scholarship Program — an important initiative geared toward increasing the number of future pilots and mechanics — as well as HFI’s efforts to preserve the history of the helicopter industry. Participating in HFI’s Online Silent Auction is a great way for companies and individuals to gain recognition for their products and services.
HFI will again hold another auction in 2016. Check back in October 2015 for details. HFI is a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit organization.
