Default Call for ANF Silent Auction Items

ANF Supports Member Newspapers Through Generous Donations and Silent Auction Items
The Arkansas Newspaper Foundation (ANF) Silent Auction will take place during the Tri-State Convention in Tunica, Miss., June 23-26. Organizers are planning several special events, including a live auction, and the whole convention promises to be a great experience, combining the resources of three successful press associations.

“We really need the support of the newspaper publishers, owners and others who support newspapers to make this event a success,” said Karen Brown, ANF executive director. “The auction has always been a fun part of our summer convention and this year will be no exception.” Publishers are asked to support the silent auction by contributing one or two items per newspaper.

Auction items can be a variety of things, such as a basket of local items that represent the area near the newspaper, a local product or service, a
certificate for a dinner and a show, tickets to an event or athletic game, hotel packages, entertainment venues, etc. Those wishing to contribute can do so by contacting Brown ( or Byron Tate, ANF Board President (

The Foundation supports member newspapers through the paid internship program, continuing education programs, speakers, literacy programs, scholarships and grant programs, etc. Programming is made available through the support of member newspapers, sponsors and foundations.

The Arkansas Newspaper Foundation (ANF) is the non-profit educational arm of the Arkansas Press Association that provides services to 29 daily newspapers, eight semi-weekly newspapers and 103 weekly newspapers across the state. The board is made up of six newspaper publishers who represent the diverse regions of Arkansas.
