Silent Auction 2005

The Connecticut Commission on Culture & Tourism, in partnership with the Greater Hartford Arts Council and the River Valley Tourism Region, is presenting the Governor’s Conference on Culture & Tourism on Nov. 16th and 17th at the new Connecticut Convention Center in Hartford. The planning stage of the annual Silent Auction has begun. The Commission is seeking donations of items, packages, etc. for the auction. This auction has been a great success in the past. The proceeds benefit the Connecticut Tourism Scholarship Fund that is available to residents of Connecticut pursuing an advanced degree and enrolled in a tourism or hospitality program at a two or four-year accredited university or college.
