For eight years, YAC Gives Back: A Benefit for InVEST® Scholarships has been the premier fundraiser for the nonprofit program that introduces students to careers in insurance and risk management.
Last year, InVEST awarded more than $73,500 in scholarships to 79 students who wanted to pursue insurance careers. You can help InVEST and the national Young Agents Committee (YAC) help more students pave the way to a successful insurance career by participating in this year's InVEST Silent Auction—whether or not you're attending this year's Big "I" Legislative Conference.
All silent auction items will be on display at the YAC Gives Back party next week, but anyone can view and bid on the items with a smartphone or other device. Just register on the InVEST Silent Auction website or text INVEST17 to 52812 and get ready to bid at 9 p.m. ET on Thursday, May 4. If someone outbids you, you'll receive a text alert, and then you can rebid online. The silent auction will close at 11 p.m. ET, at which point all winners will be notified via text.
You don't want to miss out on all the great auction items up for bid—drones, pet cams, handbags, Tiffany jewelry, gift baskets, golf gear, trips and much more. Plus, everyone who attends the event at the Renaissance Washington, D.C. Downtown Hotel will be entered for the chance to win a diamond bracelet or an Apple Watch.
