PacSwim DEI Committee Silent Auction:
Pacific Swimming’s Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Committee is hosting a Silent Auction to support Diversity and Inclusion efforts within Pacific Swimming!
Pacific Swimming DEI works to lead the way in creating more diversity in the sport of swimming and to support athletes for whom swimming participation might otherwise be financially prohibitive. The primary objective of Pacific's Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Program is to increase multicultural, ethnic, and socioeconomic diversity and to foster an inclusive environment at all levels of the sport of competitive swimming. The Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Committee develops and administers programs which are aimed at encouraging existing clubs and related organizations to expand opportunities to provide a competitive swimming experience to those individuals currently lacking such opportunities. We hope you will join our effort to uplift our mission and support our Pacific Swimming athletes and teams.
All of the funds raised from this Silent Auction will directly support Pacific Swimming athletes and teams through team grants, meet or travel support, team dues subsidies, camps, and education events for swimmers and coaches!
Our goal is to raise $25,000.
Please take a look at the auction website here: https://www.32auctions.com/PacSwimDEI.
The auction opens December 7th and closes Saturday, December 12 at 9pm!
The DEI Silent Auction has over 150 items. Some examples include: a 45 minute private swim lesson with Nathan Adrian, over 50 new tech suits and training suits, virtual cooking classes (with a professional chef!), professional underwater photo session (1 Hour), gift cards to restaurants, SwimOutlet, salons, and MUCH MORE!
We hope that you will check this out, and forward to any friends or family!
Thank you for your support!
