2015-2016 SAA Fundraising Committee
The SAA Fundraising Committee works closely with our non-profit partner, the American Academy of Audiology Foundation (AAAF), to support student scholarships and grants through various fundraising initiatives. This year we raised over $8,000! The 15-15- 15 Challenge encouraged SAA chapters to seek 15 people to donate 15 dollars each on the week of November 15th. We would like to thank all of the chapters that participated in this event, as well as alumni and faculty who showed their support for student initiatives through the AAAF.
This year, “Auction 4 Audiology” took place in Phoenix, Arizona at AudiologyNOW! 2016, where 19 chapters donated wonderfully unique items for the auction. One chapter, the University of Northern Colorado, even donated a Jolene mannequin! The “Cheers for Ears” event was attended by over 200 students and professionals, which also took place at AudiologyNOW! 2016 in Phoenix, Arizona. All attendees enjoyed an exciting evening at the Gypsy Bar at Lucky Strike in downtown Phoenix. Don’t forget to check out the SAA Facebook page to see if you were spotted by our photographer!
Thank you again to all who participated in these fundraising initiatives. Your gifts are earmarked solely for student funding through the AAAF. We look forward to seeing how you will participate next year and don't forget to visit the SAA Fundraising Web page for year-round up-to-date information!
