The National Association of RV Parks and Campground’s (ARVC) Foundation is soliciting donations for the annual live auction that will take place during the 2019 Outdoor Hospitality Conference and Expo (OHCE) on Nov. 7. According to a press release, the 2019 OHCE is taking place at the Knoxville Convention Center from Nov. 4-7 in Knoxville, Tenn.
The auction is one of the highlights of the OHCE and the money raised is vital to the ARVC Foundation’s continued efforts to support the outdoor hospitality industry.
The ARVC Foundation is a non-profit focused on providing support to members of the outdoor hospitality industry through grants and scholarships for learning and professional development opportunities, as well as support in times of need through disaster relief assistance.
The 2018 auction raised over $70,000 with donors committing funds in a variety of ways: endowments, scholarship, disaster relief and general support of the ARVC Foundation’s work.
This year’s auction will take place during the ARVC Awards of Excellence Dinner, serving as the conclusion to the week’s events. Last year’s OHCE was attended by more than 775 members and the OHCE website featured more than 4,000 unique visitors, with this year sure to be even bigger and better.
This year all donations received by Sept. 1 will be highlighted in the 2019 OHCE program. This campaign will feature a full-color photo and description of the item. Items valued at over $5,000 will receive a listing with a full-color photo, detailed description, donor logo and a link to donor website.
