Volunteers Needed To Help Solicit Items For AAJA National Silent Auction

AAJA Sacramento is helping to gather silent auction items for the national silent auction, which will be held during the AAJA convention in New York City from August 21 to 24.

Some popular auction items in the past have included hotel stays, gift certificates, jewelry, gift baskets, cookbooks, sports items, etc. You want to look for items that people would want to bid for and can easily redeem or carry home in their luggage! We can provide you more detailed instructions, plus form letters for gathering donations.

Chapter Vice-President Cody Kitaura is the contact person for the chapter’s silent auction items. He can be reached at Please let us know if you can help and the best way to contact you via email or phone.
