Don't forget the CESEF Benefit Auction on Sunday night, May 31st at the opening reception of the 2009 CES National Conference.
The Canadian Evaluation Society Educational Fund (CESEF) is a charitable organization that provides scholarships, awards, and educational opportunities to individuals wishing to pursue a career in the field of Program Evaluation.
The CESEF Auction has become an annual tradition where conference participants enjoy bidding on exciting items that have been generously donated by individuals and businesses. In 2008, the benefit auction doubled its revenue, thanks to all those who contributed to the event. Proceeds from last year supported the CESEF Masters Scholarship Program.
Experience the fun and become involved by volunteering to bring an interesting item. Included in last year's donations were an iPod with speakers, a $500 WestJet travel voucher, Riedel wine glasses, art objects, and treasures brought from all the regions of Canada and around the world. Without support of the CES members, we would not have been able to reach our fundraising goals, nor would we have had the fun of bidding on so many terrific items.
If you wish to donate an item or make a cash donation for the committee to purchase articles on your behalf, please email Rita Gunn.
We hope to have you participate in another successful auction so that CESEF can continue to support the development of future evaluators in Canada.
Let's make this year's Benefit Auction in Ottawa the best yet!
