Auction With A Twist Is Back!

June 18, 2014

In 2010, the ICHP Pharmacy Action Fund established the inaugural “Auction With A Twist” fundraiser.  Over the first three years, it raised more than $12,000 for ICHP’s advocacy efforts!  After a year off to celebrate ICHP’s 50th Anniversary last year, the Auction is back.

So here’s what you need to know:
  • The “Auction” is a “Chinese Auction” where bidders purchase tickets and place them in jars for specific prizes.  The more tickets you place a specific prize jar, the better your chances to win it.
  • Prizes are donated by ICHP members individually or as a group (for the bigger prizes) by no later than August 1st.
  • Prizes are then posted on the ICHP Website for review by August 11th.
  • Auction tickets may be purchased by fax (using the online order form) or by phone from August 25th through September 5th.
  • Tickets may be purchased at the ICHP Annual Meeting beginning with opening day registration on Thursday, September 11th through 11:00 a.m. on Saturday, September 13th.
  • The drawing for each prize will occur between 11:00 a.m. and 12:00 noon on Saturday, September 13th and announced at the Annual Meeting Awards Luncheon that day.
  • Winners need not be present to win!
In the past, donated prizes with the highest interest have been:
  • Electronic gear - i-Pads, i-Pods, Flat Screen TV, Kindles, Nooks, etc.
  • Sport Event Tickets
  • Gift Baskets – wine, chocolates, bath products
  • Books
  • Golf clubs
  • College of Pharmacy memorabilia
  • Gift Cards
