Annual Holiday Party & Silent Auction

Thank you for attending! 

Thank you to everyone who attended the Annual Holiday Party on Thursday, December 12, 2019. We hope you enjoyed your time and were able to reconnect with friends and colleagues, as well as connect with new industry professionals! 

This year, our silent auction featured more than 50 items available for bidding. Thanks to the generosity of our donors and bidders, the silent auction is expected to raise over $7,000. The total amount will be split between the Rita Lashway Scholarship Program and Equinox, Inc.

Thank you to everyone who participated in the auction, your donation is an investment in our association professionals and local community. 

A big thank you to our event partners, we couldn't do it without you. Thank you for your support and investment in ESSAE at this year's holiday event!
