HEC 99 Silent Auction

This year's HEC is Ignite, focusing on the power of connection and passion through meaningful hospitality experiences. Consistent with this theme, the Philanthropy Team will be executing a silent auction throughout the conference to support the Food Bank of the Southern Tier, a non-profit organization dedicated to working together to build & sustain hunger-free communities throughout the Southern Tier.

The silent auction will run from Friday, April 19 from 8:30AM - 7:00PM and on Saturday, April 20 from 8:30AM - 4:00PM. The auction will be located at the Hersha Center, where HECafé will be taking place. Guests will have the opportunity to bid on as many items as they want simply by writing their bid on the auction page next to the item.  All items will have a minimum bid, and bids must be for more than the previous highest. Winners will be announced at 5:30PM at the Awards Presentation.  

Everyone at HEC would like to sincerely thank the donors for their generous donations to the silent auction. Without their help, none of this would have been possible. HEC Philanthropy Team members leveraged both professional and personal connections to procure these items. 

Below, you will find a list of the silent auction items. Please feel free to contact the Philanthropy Director Mia Federico at with any questions. We look forward to seeing you all at the conference!
