promote your farm or business at the 2019 natural fiber extravaganza
The AOA Natural Fiber Extravaganza is two months away! AOA relies on numerous ways to support the many programs that are important to you and are essential to the industry. Donating to the silent auction during this event provides an opportunity to support your national organization. AOA will be promoting donated items, so get involved early to capture excellent promotional value for your farm. Your donations are greatly appreciated!
Support AOA by Donating
The AOA Silent Auction is for items from your store or business, or unique items that you think others would be interested in bidding on.
If you are willing to donate, then we need to know about your item! Please complete a brief interest form with the details of your donation. If you are attending the show you may bring the auction item to the show. If you are unable to attend, items must be received at the AOA office by July 10, 2019, or they will miss their ride to the show. If you have questions, contact us at 402-437-8484.
