June 19, 2001 – The Advertising Club of the Virgin Islands will hold its annual auction along with its annual meeting on Friday at the Ritz-Carlton St. Thomas Hotel.
The auction is the organization's annual fundraiser to support its summer professional internship program for students. It's an opportunity for members and the general public "to pick up a piece of artwork, a sensational piece of jewelry, arts and crafts, meals at local restaurants, valuable goods and services, great media buys and more," the club president, Norita Lee, says.
The evening will begin with cocktails and a preview of the auction offerings at 6 p.m. in the hotel's Leeward Room. Following a brief business meeting, induction of the 2001-02 board of directors and presentation of media awards, the auction will get under way. The $15 admission fee includes hors d'oeuvres and the right to bid in the auction. There will be a cash bar.
The annual event is an opportunity to "have fun while contributing to the primary fundraiser of the Ad Club" and "pick up some great bargains" at the same time, Lee says.
The internship program is fully funded by the auction, she notes, and "is designed to benefit the youth of our islands and the professional growth of our business community."
