Live Auction Brings Record Donation to RABF
Carmel, IN - PAR has formed strong partnerships with their recovery vendors, and those relationships have been a major contributor to PAR's continued success. To invest in and honor these partner vendors, PAR hosted a two-day event for more than a hundred recovery vendors from all across the U.S. The full-but-fun agenda for the 2019 PAR Recovery Vendor Event included networking, learning, fun, recognition, and, of course, a live auction to raise funds for RABF.
During Day One, recovery vendors were able to interact with members of PAR's team in person, take an office tour and get some updates at education breakout sessions. The evening was spent networking and socializing in downtown Indy.
Day Two was hosted at Practice Day at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. PAR is a proud sponsor of the Clauson-Marshall Racing Driven2SaveLives No. 39 car, driven by Pippa Mann. According to PAR Executive Admin Teresa Woods, guests really enjoyed the experience at the track, which included garage passes, lunch and taking in the sights.
The evening finished with dinner at the Indiana State Museum, Q&A with Pippa, presentation of awards honoring the best-of-the-best recovery vendors, followed by a live charity auction.
PAR and its recovery vendor partners raised more than $42,000 for the Recovery Agents Benefit Fund, which grants funds to member vendors in times of tragedy.
“I’m overwhelmed by the generosity of all our sponsors and partners who made this event a reality,” said Jon Armstrong, PAR recovery services manager. “It’s a great feeling to be able to give back to an organization whose sole purpose is to help those in our repo family.”
