Ninth Annual SPS Commerce Charity Auction a Success

by | Aug 15, 2018 | TeamSPS

Last week, SPSers joined together for our ninth annual SPS Commerce charity auction, benefitting seven different charities (all of which were recommended and voted on by employees). With over 450 unique items and over 2,577 bids, we were able to raise more than $32,000 – making 2018 one of our best years yet!

All in the spirit of Giving Back (one of our guiding values here at SPS), employees bid on silent auction items Monday, August 6, through Wednesday, August 8, and attended a live auction event in the late afternoon on Wednesday. Our live auction alone raised almost $7,000 thanks to our wonderful (and hilarious) SPS auctioneer and our participating employees. Items and experiences were donated by employees, friends, family, and many of our amazing customers.

It was a beautiful day for the 2018 live auction to be held on the SPS Tower lawn – employees gather for a chance to bid on some amazing items.
