It was a wild bid-a-thon at the Amstutz Live Auction last week at the Friday evening AABP-conference dinner sponsored by Zoetis and featuring auctioneer Bryan Mergen. The top selling item was the Ibexx Lite Ultrasound system for $11,250.

Over $44,000 was raised from the Live auction which included 15 high-end items such as art, trips, custom boots and the ultrasound unit from E.I. Medical. The Silent Auction, which had 115 items, raised over $14,000.

The AABP raffle, the 5K Stampede Fun Run and member donations brought the total contributed to the Amstutz Scholarship Fund well over $60,000.

AABP and the Amstutz Scholarship Fund thank the members, AABP partners and veterinary student chapters for their generous donations to the 2014 Live and Silent Auctions.
