  • Uncle Sam's Land: Kudos for doing the right thing

    Jan 30 2009

    I was recently informed that a Utah real estate company that we consult, Uncle Sam’s Land, is donating an actual property from their portfolio for the upcoming silent auction “Love for Nie Nie.” That is an inspiring donation and reminded me that we can all do something of the like!

    I am sure many of you are aware that in August of ’08, Stephanie and Christian Nielson, and their four children (all under six years of age), were in a private plane crash in Arizona. The flight instructor was killed, Stephanie and Christian were both in critical condition, and Stephanie’s sister took in the children. The ‘blogging world’ really reached out to both the Nielson family and Stephanie’s sister in the form of support and donations. And now the “Love for Nie Nie” auction and benefit concert is being held February 2nd, 2009 at the Covey Center for the Arts in Provo. Here are the details:

    Love for Nie Nie Benefit Concert and Silent Auction

    Mindy Gledhill with The Thrillionaires
    Monday, Feb., 2nd, 7:00 p.m.
    The Covey Center for the Arts, Provo, UT
    Buy tickets at www.coveycenter.org or call 852-7007

    Discounts available for students, seniors and groups of 6 or more

    Silent Auction Info:
    Auction has started at www.formerlyphread.blogspot.com
    Online bidding ends Feb. 2nd at 3:00 p.m.
    The ending bids will be the starting bids for all of these items at the live auction which begins at 6:15 p.m. in the Covey Center lobby and ends after the concert

    Some highlights from the auction include two packages to see the Jazz on the second row, including dinner and parking, valued at $950 each. There’s also, a basket full of makeup by MAC valued at $600.00, and a private, acoustic concert with Mindy.

    So, follow the suit of companies like Uncle Sam’s Land and get involved. Not only is this a great way to do something charitable with your resources, but it is also a great PR move. And there is nothing better than doing the right thing and growing your business at the same time!

      I attended the benefit concert down here in Arizona with Mindy Gledhill. The concert was great, me and my wife love Mindy, but ever better was to be able to help the Nielson Family and learn more about their tragic story. That is so great to hear that people are still giving to their family. I can’t believe that Uncle Sams Land is actually giving a piece of land for the auction, amazing! What a great example for us all.

      @Greg – Small world! I will be attending the benefit concert in Provo and am sure that my wife and I will have a similar experience.
