Call for Auction Items 
Start planning and designing your donations today! The next NEF Auction will take place during the Party for a Purpose on Thursday, February 8, 2018, at METALfab2018 at the Phoenix Convention Center in Phoenix, Arizona. 
Get your costumes ready and join us as we go back in time to the 1950s when NOMMA was first established. Our "Great Balls of Fire" theme will set the tone as we celebrate NOMMA’s 60th Anniversary! The NEF Trustees have set a lofty goal for the 2018 auction to raise $1,000 for every year NOMMA has been established. We need your help in achieving our goal, so let’s join forces to successfully raise $60,000 to support education in our industry! This auction is our largest fundraiser, and it is critically important to be able to expand educational offerings to the people of our industry.
The 2018 Auction Committee, chaired by Carl Grainger, has been hard at work. Leaves, 
custom forged by NOMMA's very own Jack Klahm, will be available for purchase again this year to commemorate, celebrate and honor individuals and companies.

NEF would be very grateful for any donated items submitted for the auction. Past donations included tools, gift cards, jewelry, electronics, gift baskets, hand forged items such as tables, motorcycles, garden art, candlesticks and more. Donated
items can dropped off at the NEF office located in the Phoenix Convention Center in room 232C. Prior to the auction, items will be on display in the NOMMA Pavillion. Generous donations from our members and supporters help to make the auction
a success. Let’s make this the largest auction in NOMMA’s 60-year history!
Look for details on where to ship donated items on the NOMMA website (, or items can be dropped off onsite at the NEF Office room at the Convention Center after February 7, 2018. The donation form is also available for download at
