Auction

CPF was established in 1971 as APA California’s nonprofit foundation. If you are a member of APA California, you are already a member of CPF. Relying on your donations and fund-raising activities like the auction, CPF annually awards approximately $50,000 in student scholarships and memberships in APA. With your help, at the 2015 APA California conference in Oakland, CPF raised nearly $35,000 in auction and raffle proceeds to be applied to student scholarships!

The 2016 CPF Virginia Viado and Ted Holzem Auction took place on Sunday, October 23, at the APA California Annual Conference in Pasadena, CA.  Thanks to the generosity of our California planning community and supporters, over $30,000 was raised for planning student scholarships at this year’s auction!  Thanks to all the volunteers, donors and sponsors who made the 2016 auction a huge success.

 

How to Donate Items for the Auction

It’s not too early to start thinking about items you can donate for the 2017 CPF Auction! . In addition to donating planning related items like old maps and books, crowd-pleasers include: bottles of wine, tickets to interesting events, bed and breakfast accommodations/weekend get-aways, gift certificates to restaurants and book stores. Art is always popular. Artists and photographers, strut your stuff and help CPF by donating your art.

Stay tuned for more details regarding the 2017 Auction at the APA California Conference in Sacramento September 23-27, 2017.  In the meantime, direct any questions to calplanningauction@gmail.com.
