I have had the joy of working closely with some of you already, but for those of you who don’t know who I am please allow me to introduce myself. I am Amanda Terrell and I’ve been working as the FLC’s Event Coordinator Intern since August 2012. My primary focus has been assisting in planning the 29th annual Florida Literacy Conference as well as working on our very successful Tutor Symposium sessions held last November and handling tutor training material requests. As conference approaches, I am getting more and more excited about our silent auction. I want to share SOME of the MANY items we will have up for bidding during Conference!
- Admission tickets into Florida’s most exciting attractions, including: Walt Disney World, Great Explorations Children’s Museum (1 year membership!), Orlando City Soccer, Wonderworks, Central Florida Zoo, Bush Gardens, SeaWorld Orlando, and Kennedy Space Center. Make a family fun day out of any of these auction items!
- Two round-trip tickets to anywhere in the continental U.S. that Southwest flies. There are no blackout dates and checking luggage is always free with Southwest! Go ahead and plan that trip you have always wanted take and plan it on your time.
- One night deluxe accommodations gift certificate to the beautiful JW Marriott in Orlando, Florida. This could make a perfect get away weekend where you could pamper yourself and whoever else you enjoy spending your time with!
- Gift cards and gift certificates to a number of places, including: Staples, Billy’s Bike Rentals, the KeyWest Express Cruise, The Florida Orchestra, The Florida Aquarium, and The Dali Museum.
All proceeds from the silent auction will help FLC support community based literacy organizations with their training and program development needs. The auction will be open for bids beginning Wednesday, May 8 at 8:30am and will close on Thursday, May 9 at 3:10pm.
Besides the items aforementioned, we will have many more fabulous gifts to bid on so be sure to stop by the silent auction tables and bring back something for your loved ones!
