NASTT's Educational Fund Auction
Congratulations to Greg Penza of ULC Robotics for winning the 2014 Caribbean Vacation Raffle sponsored by Vermeer. Greg received a $5,000 voucher to plan to a dream vacation, but instead he generously donated the $5,000 back to NASTT’s Educational Fund. Thank you Greg!
Join us for an awesome time at Totally Rad Slopes, the 1980s Ski-themed 14th Annual Educational Fund Auction & Reception, March 16, 2015 in Denver, Colorado!
The Auction helps raise money for a very worthy cause. Since 2002, NASTT has raised over $750,000 and used those funds in support of its educational initiatives. Due to your generosity, NASTT is able to sponsor students’ attendance at NASTT's No-Dig Shows, award scholarships, publish trenchless resources and provide targeted training courses to the membership at-large. Thank you to this year's Auction Reception Sponsors: Barbco and Miller Pipeline!
