NIGHT OF GIVING

Description

This year ASID PA West is partnering with Cosentino to host the First Annual “Night of Giving.” We are extremely excited about this event because not only is it going to be at an awesome venue with lots of opportunity for socializing and networking with great people, it is one of the events where all proceeds will go to the ASID foundation (Please see below for information on the ASID Foundation).. The ASID Foundation is working to build a strong, highly-educated, and socially conscious design community. The foundation is dedicated to providing the resources and tools necessary to grow the interior design profession through scholarships, research and education with the support and donations of members like you!

We are moving the Chinese auction that was originally done at the annual holiday luncheon, to this event and are hoping to have great success. So if you are interested in donating a basket/ giftcard/ or gift of some kind, please reach out to: president@paw.asid.org

We are thrilled to announce that the grand prize is going to be a trip to Spain! Cosentino and ASID PA West will both be donating a combined amount of $1000.00 to be raffled off towards airfare to Spain. As you may know, Cosentino's headquarters is in SpainOnce in Spain, the winner will be fully hosted by Cosentino with all expenses paid by them. Along with selling tickets for a trip to Spain, we will also be selling $5.00 chance auction tickets for the rest of the auction items. Each ticket will have 20 chances.
