  • Maryland Economic Development Association Seeks Donations

    March 28, 2019
    Imagine having the opportunity to promote your business and showcase its products or services, while at the same time bringing in money for a good cause that advances economic development.
    The Maryland Economic Development Association, MEDA, will be holding its silent auction during their Annual Conference on April 28th - 30th at the Chesapeake Bay Resort in Cambridge, MD.  Proceeds from the auction benefit the Lofton Scholarship Fund which has made available $7,000 in scholarships for MEDA members each year.  The funds also make it possible for many members to enhance their credentials as economic development professionals.
    We are kindly asking for a donation of a product or service that represents the characteristics of our county and what it has to offer. Donations will then be assembled into a gift basket which in turn will be auctioned at the conference.  Some of the items that were donated last year were gift cards to restaurants and hotel stays, wooden plaque with Maryland flag, hand blown glass ornament, mugs, coffee,  museum passes, wine tastings, etc.
    Thank you in advance for your contribution to this cause.  Should you have any questions about the auction, please contact Margaret Bollhorst by email at
    margaretb@medamd.com or by phone (O) 410.315.7926 or (C) 410.456.6459.
