We are delighted to be hosting the first ever ONLINE Silent Auction this year, to benefit the Maine Osteopathic Education Foundation. In true tradition, we host the Silent Auction each February in conjunction with the Midwinter Symposium at the Holiday Inn by the Bay in Portland. This year, we will offer the same great fundraiser for MOEF, just virtually based. With it being offered online, it  broadens our audience beyond those in attendance at the conference, to anyone within the MOA network and beyond. The auction will run from February 11-13th and you will be able to view the auction gifts in advance of the auction going "Live", make donations and bid on some great items. We are also collecting donations now if you or anyone you know, might be interested in donating goods, gift cards or services. 

Save the Date!
