A Bid For Hope Auction Forms
Café Femenino Foundation
A Bid for Hope proceeds will benefit the Café Femenino Foundation
You Are Invited to Participate!
For the sixth year, Coffee Fest is hosting a silent auction benefiting the Café Femenino Foundation. We are combining our efforts to raise funds to help poor women and their families in coffee communities.
The A Bid for Hope silent auction will be on the trade show. There will be tables set up with donated items only from exhibitors for attendees to look over and bid on.
The Foundation is looking for items to be auctioned off during our A Bid for Hope silent auction. The items will be on display during the three days off the show – the A Bid for Hope auction will “close” at 1:30pm on Sunday; item checkout will start at 2:30pm.
It is a wonderful opportunity to increase your presence at the show; a second place where potential customers can see, hear about and “bid” on your products.
Items can be gift certificates, coffee, coffee equipment…almost any item or service can be placed in the auction, but it needs to have a minimum value of $150.00. Items under this value will be placed with other auction items of lesser value.
We are excited about this event at Coffee Fest Chicago and the opportunity that they are providing for our industry to come together and really help poor coffee families that are the backbone of our whole industry. In these poor economic times it is even more important for us to dig a little deeper to support these communities whose economies are even more fragile than ours and who are at an even greater risk of starvation.
The funds from this auction will go to fund grant requests for seed programs, health programs, training programs, economic development, micro lending programs, and education programs in a number of different countries. A complete list of 2013 Grants to be funded by December 31, 2013 can be found on our web site at www.cafefemeninofoundation.org.
