As Convention attendees acknowledge today’s historic opportunities for news media companies, we’ll be celebrating the landmark 50th anniversary of the PNA Foundation at our annual fundraising auction.  PNA’s own history-making visionaries are invited to secure the blessings of cocktails, hors d’oeuvres and silent and live auctions at the awe-inspiring National Constitution Center in Philadelphia. 

Registration for this special event is included in your full-time Convention registration or a la carte options are available.  The evening begins at 5:30 p.m. with cocktails and hors d’oeuvres followed by the live auction.  

In addition to the live and silent auctions, raffle tickets are sold.  Each raffle ticket costs $100.  With only 100 tickets or less sold each year, you have an excellent chance to win five terrific prizes, including a spectacular trip.  Raffle tickets can be purchased even if you're not attending.  Download an online raffle ticket to be mailed or faxed.  Or simply type on the online form and email Melinda.

More detailed information on the 2017 Auction is available.

General Auction Information

Held every year during PNA's Annual Convention, the Auction is an opportunity to support the Foundation through donations and/or bids.  All contributions to the PNA Foundation help to support the many training programs and statewide contests we offer.  We also work to develop the next generation of readers and journalists while educating the public on the importance of the First Amendment.

Popular auction items include fine jewelry, tickets to professional sporting events, stays at vacation homes and luxury hotels, signed memorabilia, gift baskets and much more.

The Auction is also known for its traditional raffle. Each raffle ticket costs $100 and gives you a one-in-20 chance to win five terrific prizes, including a spectacular trip. Every year only 100 raffle tickets or less are sold.
