Silent Auction Donations Are Arriving But We Still Need More!

January 26, 2018


We are excited to announce that we have received our first donations to the Norman J. Crabtree Memorial Scholarship silent auction, which will take place during the 2018 Annual Conference.  For more information on the scholarship, click here.  

The Ohio State University Airport has donated a “Go Bucks” package, which includes two tickets to the Ohio State – Rutgers football game on September 8, 2018, a behind-the-scenes tour of Ohio Stadium for up to 10 people (not the same day as the football game), and other items for the proud Buckeye fan.

You too can help support future aviation professionals by donating items for the auction and then bidding on these items throughout our conference. As a reminder, we are looking for items to be donated based on four general themes: Aviation; Ohio’s Aviation Heritage; Explore Ohio; and Ohio’s Craft Beer, Wine, and Spirits.
