Auction of Industry Memorabilia Raises More than $3,000 for Charity

Woodwork Career Alliance of North America to be Beneficiary

The Wood Machinery Manufacturers of America (WMMA) and the Woodworking Machinery Industry Association (WMIA) the national trade associations for those who make and distribute machinery, cutting tools and supplies for the woodworking industry, have announced the results of the silent auction held at the Woodworking Industry Conference (WIC). The auction, which this year will benefit the Woodwork Career Alliance of North America, raised $3,387.

Among the items donated for auction were exquisite hand-carved wooden memorabilia donated by member companies, as well as various gifts including food, wine and more. The WIC took place in Puerto Rico in late April.

The total amount raised in donations was nearly 100% higher than the $1,700 total from WIC 2013. Members from both WMMA and WMIA supported this cause not just with their donations to the auction, but with their bids.

The next WIC, a collaborative meeting between WMMA and WMIA, will be held April 21-25, 2015, at the Grand Hyatt San Antonio in San Antonio, Texas. Preliminary information on that meeting can be found at the WMMA website, www.wmma.org.
