San Diego, CA (November 3, 2011) — Travel To Go President, Jeanette Bunn, as a volunteer for C.A.R.E., helped raise a new record of Silent/Live Auction and Super raffle proceeds at the non-profit trade association’s 54th Semi-Annual Conference held from September 24-28, 2011 in Chicago, IL.
Along with the assistance of fellow C.A.R.E. Vice President Dave Dawson (Global Connections) and Wayne Messmer, the well-known voice of the National Anthem that is currently serving as a fixture with the Chicago Cubs and Wolves and formerly, the Blackhawks, Ms. Bunn helped raise over $22,000.00 to underwrite the marketing efforts of the C.A.R.E. organization.
Bunn was responsible for recruiting donations of auction and super raffle items, the coordination of volunteers to set up the auction and recruiting and assisting auctioneer Messmer during the auction.
According to Mr. Messmer “I’m so happy that I had the good fortune of being seated next to Jeanette on a plane ride. She spoke with such passion about her business that I was glad to have had the opportunity to meet a terrific group of folks who love life and what they do for a living at the Chicago event. It was a lot of fun. I am so impressed with the genuine energy and enthusiasm within the C.A.R.E. group. The family feeling is most apparent, led by the contagious spirit of service of Jeanette Bunn. I was proud to get to know some outstanding people and to assist with the live auction at the Chicago event and to hopefully have played a small part in helping with their bright future.”
Just a few of the auction items included exotic vacation week packages, advertising opportunities in major trade publications, registrations to industry conventions, and the grand prize of a 40” LCD HDTV. The funds raised are used to increase C.A.R.E.’s membership base, which has a direct impact on all C.A.R.E. member companies.
