buy.at Give Back Event Raises $2000 to Fight Breast Cancer

buy.at hosted their “Give Back” event during Affiliate Summit East 2011.

Supported by their wonderful sponsors (Girly Checks and TicketSizzle) they hosted an engaging event at The Kimberly hotel and raised $1,825.00 for Affiliate Marketers Give Back‘s Avon Walk for Breast Cancer.

Guests enjoyed a stunning view of Midtown Manhattan from the 30th floor while snacking on delicious hors d’oeuvres and choosing from a selection of cocktails including the Girly Checks “Blank Check” martini.

Guests were challenged to “Think Pink” and wear any pink item to the event (clothing/accessories). In return, a $2 donation was made each by buy.at, Girly Checks and TicketSizzle to Affiliate Marketers Give Back. We are pleased to announce that 172 attendees wore pink resulting in a $1,032 donation.

In addition, the event included a silent auction featuring prizes donated by TicketSizzle, Girly Checks, Lindsay Phillips, VIP Live Drive and Team Loxly/PartyBeans. I also donated a bottle of my Signorina Wine. In total, the auctions raised another $793 for AMGB.

Since I love even numbers, I just personally donated $175.00 to the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer to make the buy.at Give Back Event’s total funds raised…. $2,000!

A heartfelt thanks goes out to the buy.at team, their sponsors, all of the attendees that sported their pink to the party, and the winners of the silent auction.

MWAH!

A trip to Affiliate Summit East is not complete for me without going to a Yankee game. And, that’s where you’ll find me on Tuesday night, August 23rd as the Yankees take on Oakland.

Fanatics.com has a great line of women’s fan gear and I’ve already picked up mine.

I’ll be rockin’ this Yankees look and helping to fight breast cancer at the same time:

$5,000 Donated to the Avon Breast Cancer Crusade from Affiliate Summit


The Race to Affiliate Summit East 2011, a dailymile challenge where Affiliate Summit committed to donating $1 to the Avon Breast Cancer Crusade for each mile run or walked (up to $5,000) through the challenge, has ended.

There were 54 folks involved in the challenge, and the top ten runners tallied 1,882 miles.

Overall, there were 3,052 miles run or walked by all of the participants, so it came to a total of $3,052 to be donated by Affiliate Summit.

But since Affiliate Summit likes round numbers, they’ve decided to make it $5,000 to the the Avon Breast Cancer Crusade.

Shawn Collins ended up at #4 right now (see his dailymile profile) with 205 miles. The next timehe’s planning to be #1!

Here were the top ten fundraising affiliate marketing athletes at the conclusion of the challenge.

Congratulations to Kevin Strawbridge, who had the most total miles at the end of the challenge with 322. He will receive a Platinum pass to Affiliate Summit East 2011.

Affiliate Summit East 2011 is taking place August 21-23, 2011 at the Hilton New York.

And for anybody who wants to get a run in during Affiliate Summit East 2011, the folks from we-care.com are organizing a 5 mile fun run in Central Park.

If you’re interested in joining them, go to Sixth Avenue and Central Park South (about five blocks north of the Hilton New York) on Monday, August 22 at 8am.

The we-care.com folks will be wearing orange shirts to make it easier to find them.
