Please Donate to the AITC Silent Auction
The annual American Indian Tourism Conference concludes with an evening gala, the Excellence in Tourism Industry Awards Gala and Silent Auction, which celebrates leading indigenous visitor destinations and hospitality professionals.
The AITC Silent Auction raises funding for AIANTA’s Hospitality and Tourism Scholarship Program, which benefits Native students pursuing post-secondary degrees in Hospitality and Tourism Management and other tourism-related fields. To date, AIANTA has awarded 22 scholarships to Native students through this program.
The ongoing success of the Scholarship program is due in large part to the generosity of our Native communities, partners, and donors. We would be honored if your tribe, Native community, business or organization would consider donating an item to our Silent Auction.
Don’t know what to donate? Please contact Ariel Richardson at firstname.lastname@example.org or call (505) 724-3592 to discuss your donation or for more information.
