The 2013 Professional Outdoor Media Association Conference auctions and raffles were a grand slam, again.

Conference attendees dug deep into their pockets and checkbooks and were exceedingly generous with their bids on the myriad of live and silent auction items and great raffle packages offered. The auctions and raffles raised over $11,000 for POMA and its educational programs.

The card auction for the Smith and Wesson handgun donated by the U.S. Sportsmen’s Alliance was a huge hit, generating over $1,200 in receipts. And, Jon Pries made the night’s biggest single-item bid for a package of wingshooting lessons and/or camp cooking donated by POMA Past President Bill Miller.

Other big ticket items included firearms, optics, a weekend at Jim Zumbo’s home in Wyoming, and a myriad of high-value silent auction packages of combined items from the long list of incredible donors (see below).

Donors – thank you for your support and lavish generosity. POMA is indebted to you. Your support is critical to the organization’s well being and financial strength.
