Get your silent auction donations in soon

By Liz Keener, EPG Media & Specialty Information

We’re seven weeks from the 20th annual MMPA Excellence Awards gala, so it’s time to get those silent auction donations to the Excellence Awards committee.

The silent auction is one of the biggest annual fundraisers for the MMPA. The money raised is used to present educational opportunities and networking events year-round and to support the publishing industry in Minnesota.

We ask that items be over the value of $50 for the silent auction, but if you have an item of lesser value that you’d like to donate, we’re also looking for drawing items to give away throughout the evening. Ideas for donations include: gift cards, tickets to local events or experiences, weekend getaways and electronic gadgets.

Mail or drop off donations to Greg DeMarco of Franchise Times by Friday, October 28:

Franchise Times Corp.
2808 Anthony Lane South
Minneapolis, MN 55418

For questions about donations, contact Greg DeMarco at or 612-767-3214.
