Round Rock, TX, January 13, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- The Texas Self Storage Association donated almost $33,000 to the Shriners Children’s Hospital in Galveston. Donor Relations representative Jim Smith accepted the donation from Executive Director Ginny Sutton and Director of Marketing and Membership Silvia Pendleton at the Association’s offices in Round Rock on January 6, 2010. The money was raised through a variety of activities held during the Association’s annual convention, including both live and silent auctions, and a charity poker tournament.
The Shriners Children’s Hospital in Galveston has been the beneficiary of the Association’s fundraising efforts since 2001. “It’s an honor to support an organization that does so much to treat critically burned children while relying solely on donations from the public and without charging for their services,” says TSSA Fundraiser Committee Chairman Doug Hunt.
To-date, TSSA has raised approximately $230,000 for the hospital. The Fundraising Committee is already making plans for the next campaign, which will mark the ninth year that the Texas Self Storage Association has raised funds for this worthy cause. Although the Committee solicits items for the charity auction all year, their efforts will bear fruit during the TSSA Annual Convention and Trade Show in Fort Worth during October 18 – 20, 2010.
The Texas Self Storage Association was established in 1986 and is a non-profit trade association dedicated to enhancing the quality of the self-storage industry in Texas. The Association provides opportunities for members to increase their knowledge of the self-storage industry through education, research, discussion and exchange of information.
