    The Hawaii Coffee Association has a Silent Auction at its annual conference. It is a popular event for our members and an important fund raiser for the organization.

    We are currently seeking donated merchandise from companies and individuals to help raise funds for HCA activities. Examples of items include (but not limited to) products, merchandise, artwork, crafts, gift certificates, coupons with discounts or services. The annual HCA Silent Auction is a popular event for our members and an important fundraiser for the association. We can also include a special offer, coupon or a branded item in each attendee's goody bag. Get discovered by over a hundred coffee professionals! Showcase your product or service while helping support the HCA.

    The 2020 conference is being held at the Ala Moana Hotel Honolulu HI and is well attended by farmers and other industry professionals. During the conference, the silent auction donations are on display where attendees can view and bid on a wide range of items such as t-shirts, hats, handbags, farm supplies, non-farm merchandise, services, gift certificates and discounts, resort stays, etc.

    Attendees find great deals and donors receive valuable exposure to business professionals. It is a fun and easy way to support an important segment of our local economy.
