Conference on Aging & Silent Auction Return


The 32nd Annual Conference on Aging, hosted by the First Tennessee Area Agency on Aging & Disability will return to an in-person format on April 26, 2022. This year's Conference theme "Age My Way" will bring together speakers and experts on issues effecting our region's senior population at the Meadowview Convention Center for a full schedule of session. Topics include the The VA Caregiver Support Program, Food for Thought: Nutrition and the Aging Brain, Workforce Solutions, Elder Abuse Awareness, to name a few.

In the lead up to the "Age My Way" Conference, the staff of the FTAAAD have organized an virtual silent auction. As always, 100% of the donations are tax-deductible and will go to our Emergency Assistance Program.


We've pulled some of our best donated items from our cancelled 2020 auction (Thanks, COVID-19!) and will be posting them on the FTAAAD Facebook page with detailed item information, the starting bid amounts, and multiple photos. We'll also be featuring donor logos to thank them for their generosity!


Each auction will be open for 24 hours and they will all begin on Wednesdays and end on Thursdays throughout April. The first two items will be open for bidding on Wednesday, March 30!


The official rules will be included in each post, but here they are: 1. Bids must be in whole dollar amounts. 2. Bids should be listed as a number (e.g. 10), with no dollar signs. 3. Bids are final—no retractions are allowed. 4. The highest bid submitted before the closing time wins. Winners will be contacted via Messenger.


5. The winning bid is the highest amount submitted, even if you outbid yourself. 6. Payment is due within 72 hours after the auction closes, and can be paid with cash, check or online payment. 7. All items must be picked up—no shipping is available.
