ABOUT OUR CHARITY

The Arizona Pet Project

HSMAI'S 2019 "Charity of the Year" is The Arizona Pet Project. The primary goal of AZ Pet Project is preventing pet homelessness by keeping families with pets together. They do so by providing affordable services, resources, and support through shelter prevention programs such as free spay and neuter and shelter intervention. AZ Pet Project supports families by keeping their pets healthy and safe. Animals bring comfort, joy, healing and health, and they believe those benefits should be available to all. It is often those who greatly benefit from the human-animal bond they share with their pets - in some cases they may be the only family these individuals have, who need their assistance the most. With the help of a caring community, they support families and save pets. In 2018, AZ Pet Project provided 2,696 free spay and neuter surgeries and kept 1,400 pets with their families. More information is at https://azpetproject.org

THE CONCEPT OF THE AUCTION

The Chinese Auction was conceived in 1982 by the Arizona Chapter of the Hospitality Sales & Marketing Association Int'l. This event has gained national recognition and has been adopted by numerous HSMAI and MPI chapters through the U.S. as their major fundraiser.

The auction was originally given the Chinese theme due to the location of the event - the former China Doll Restaurant in Phoenix. Over the years, the auction has grown in size and has moved its location to larger venues. The Chinese theme has remained.

The idea of the auction is to provide each guest with a list of prizes (such as dinners, golf outings, gift baskets, services, and hotel/resort stays) and a numbered stick. Each table is supplied with a bucket that is placed in the middle. Starting with the number one item, the auctioneer describes that item and asks the guests who are interested in bidding on this item to toss a quarter or quarters in the bucket. The guest then holds their stick in the air. The auctioneer calls out the numbers that are held up. A gonger (who cannot see or hear what is going on) is responsible for hitting the gong after a few seconds. The last number called out when the gong rings has won that prize and goes to the stage to claim it. This sequence of events goes on throughout the evening until all prizes are gone. Over the years, a silent and live auction have also been added to the event.

This event has won numerous awards including "Stars of the Industry" Awards from the Arizona Lodging & Tourism Association, "Awards of Excellence in Association Management" from the Arizona Society of Association Executives and several HSMAI International Awards.

Don't forget to bring your quarters for bidding.
Come ready to have a great time.
This is the perfect event to bring family members, friends and co-workers too.
