The Silent Auction is Live: Once you’ve registered for the event, you can access the Silent Auction. Thanks to those of you who have donated items to both the Silent & Live Auctions.

Live Auction items are also visible once you’ve registered.

The MPA Store is live and includes 2020 commemorative logo wear.

All proceeds of both Auctions and The Store benefit the MPA Scholarship Fund and we’ve added a Donation button to the event site for those who choose to make a straight donation to the MPA Scholarship Fund.

In Memoriam: We’d like to include an In Memoriam piece in the program and need your help. Please send a photo and brief by 10/15 for any MPA-related people who have passed away in the past year to Awards Presentation MC Greg Rec at grec@pressherald.com
