AAM Hosts Their 14th Annual AAM Tradeshow
AAM hosted their highly anticipated 14th Annual Trade Show where over 80 reputable association vendors participated and showcased their services to AAM Community Managers and support staff, while simultaneously raising money for charity.
Operating not only as an exciting and resourceful event for Managers to familiarize themselves with some of Arizona's association vendors, the AAM Trade show is also a charitable event for AAM and vendor participants to further invest in relationships throughout the community by giving back and lending support to those in need. This year, AAM proudly partnered with Gabriel's Angels, the only program in Arizona that delivers healing pet therapy to abused, neglected and at-risk kids, in which all proceeds from the event were donated to this extraordinary organization.
AAM's baseball-themed Trade Show encouraged vendors and employees to sport their favorite baseball attire, which was also vividly displayed throughout the entire Trade Show with themed booths, games, prizes and food including a concessions stand that offered traditional game day eats such as hot dogs, hamburgers, cotton candy, popcorn and snow cones.
As part of the AAM Trade Show tradition, AAM had the honor of presenting Gabriel's Angels with donations of over $12,000. Additionally, vendors and AAM employees collected and donated hundreds of items needed by the charity including coloring books, markers, and reading books. AAM was also able to raise money through a silent auction where Trade Show attendees were able to purchase paintings created by children who have benefited from the Gabriel's Angels organization.
"We are excited to have enjoyed another successful Trade Show," said AAM President Amanda Shaw. "AAM is passionate about giving back to the community and those in need and we would not be able to do so without the collective help from our employees and vendors. It is amazing to see everyone work together for an amazing cause and we are thankful to have partnered with Gabriel's Angels. We admire what the organization has done for the community and are honored to have had the opportunity to collaborate for a positive cause."
