Some Past Donated Items

Some Past Donated Items

Once again the 2017 Coffee Fest Tradeshows will be hosting A Bid for Hope Silent Auctions in Nashville, Chicago and Portland, Oregon. Proceeds from these auctions will benefit the Café Femenino Foundation.

The A Bid for Hope auctions provide our industry the opportunity to come together and really help poor coffee families that are the backbone of our whole industry. In these poor economic times it is even more important for us to dig a little deeper to support these communities whose economies are even more fragile than ours and who are at an even greater risk of starvation.

The auctions are only to the exhibitors at the Coffee Fest tradeshow. They're growing in popularity – attendees look forward to seeing the great items they can bid on at the auction. This is just one more way that exhibitors can showcase their products. Here are some examples of the creative ways exhibitors have been putting together their auction items/baskets including product gift certificates.
