Tourism Cares, the philanthropic arm of the National Tour Association (NTA), will auction a motorcoach donated by Stallion Bus Industries at the 2007 NTA Annual Convention, which takes place Nov. 2 through 6 in Kansas City, Mo.
The deluxe, 36-passenger SLC 936 Sunliner Coach will be on display on the convention floor and will be the featured item during the live auction on Nov. 5.
Every year, the Tourism Cares live and silent auctions feature items donated by NTA members. The theme of this year's silent auction is "Bidding on the Best," which will focus on high-end, unique items. Bidding starts Friday and ends at 5 p.m. Monday before the live auction.
"The silent and live auctions are a long-standing NTA tradition that help Tourism Cares give back to the society," said NTA Chairman and CEO Randy Julian. "NTA is pleased to contribute to the work of Tourism Cares. Their dedication to conservation, restoration, and preservation, as well as to tourism students around the world is one that NTA members are proud to take part in and we are thrilled Stallion Bus Industries has made such a generous donation that will make this year's event a great success."
