Savvy shoppers snapped up travel bargains galore, and helped raise nearly $10,000 for the travel industry’s number one career accelerator.

The hammer fell on TIME (the Travel Industry Mentor Experience) 2017 Silent Auction raising close to $10,000, funds essential to TIME’s continued identification and development of the travel industry leaders of the future.

“Even though we fell just short of our goal of $10,000, we’re pleased with the result, and so very grateful for the funds”.

Penny Spencer, TIME Founder

“We are a not-for-profit organisation, and all monies that come into the program through sponsorship and fund-raising go directly into TIME,” she added.

“The program enjoys loyal support from sponsors and industry partners whose annual contributions to our auction play a huge role in keeping us going.”
