A MESSAGE FROM THE BOARD

PRO PLAYERS ASSOCIATION CELEBRATES OUR 20TH ANNIVERSARY!
 
Even though the Pro Players Association was only founded in 2002, our CEO has been experienced in fundraising for over 52 years. Yes, he started in 1969 when he organized a carnival for cancer and raised $35,000; and then he founded the American Cancer Society Juniors in 1970. Since, he has founded or co-founded 11 nonprofit charities in the U.S.
 
Our celebrity members combined have hundreds of years’ experience in fundraising efforts.
We have worked with every kind of charity and have catered to all kinds of crowds.
 
We participate in continuing education relative to fundraising and auctioneering to keep us abreast of what is going on in today’s fundraising environment. We keep informed and stay connected to the auction market daily.
 
We have worked events that spread the range of admission ticket price from “FREE” to “$1000 per person”. We are very familiar with the spectrum of clientele.
 
We have undertaken a variety of challenges in the organization and implementation of these events and have achieved great success. Our record and many accolades speak to these successes.
 
We are available to assist in an established event or we can organize an event from scratch.
 
Please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions or concerns relative to working in conjunction with the Pro Players Association on any of your fundraising efforts.
