DSEF Opens Silent Auction ahead of Industry Meeting
The Direct Selling Education Foundation (DSEF) is now accepting bids in its Experience of a Lifetime Silent Auction, an annual fundraiser held in conjunction with the Direct Selling Association’s Annual Meeting, which runs May 31 to June 2.
The silent auction—as well as a live auction that will take place during the Annual Meeting Awards Gala in San Antonio—supports the foundation’s mission to educate the public on direct selling and its impact on individuals and communities. Last year’s inaugural live auction raised $154,000 to fund DSEF efforts such as a recent self-regulation panel, the Campus Days program and National Consumer Protection Week resources.
Bidders can take part in the auction from home through the Handbid App available for Apple and Android. This year’s offerings include tech gadgets, weekend getaways and VIP access to sporting events. During the Awards Gala on June 2, the DSA will also announce the recipients of this year’s industry-wide ETHOS Awards.
