buy.at hosted their “Give Back” event during Affiliate Summit East 2011.

Supported by their wonderful sponsors (Girly Checks and TicketSizzle) they hosted an engaging event at The Kimberly hotel and raised $1,825.00 for Affiliate Marketers Give Back‘s Avon Walk for Breast Cancer.

Guests enjoyed a stunning view of Midtown Manhattan from the 30th floor while snacking on delicious hors d’oeuvres and choosing from a selection of cocktails including the Girly Checks “Blank Check” martini.

Guests were challenged to “Think Pink” and wear any pink item to the event (clothing/accessories).  In return, a $2 donation was made each by buy.at, Girly Checks and TicketSizzle to Affiliate Marketers Give Back.  We are pleased to announce that 172 attendees wore pink resulting in a $1,032 donation.

In addition, the event included a silent auction featuring prizes donated by TicketSizzle, Girly Checks, Lindsay Phillips, VIP Live Drive and Team Loxly/PartyBeans.  I also donated a bottle of my Signorina Wine.  In total, the auctions raised another $793 for AMGB.

Since I love even numbers, I just personally donated $175.00 to the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer to make the buy.at Give Back Event's total funds raised…. $2,000!

A heartfelt thanks goes out to the buy.at team, their sponsors, all of the attendees that sported their pink to the party, and the winners of the silent auction.

We certainly want to echo the thank you to Girly Checks & TicketSizzle, all of the attendees that wore pink and everyone who participated in the silent auction. We were truly impressed by the generosity, support and pink attire creativity 😉

I loved how everyone attending were such good sports about wearing pink. We has pink shirts, pink shorts, pink boas, pink hair feathers, and even a pink monkey. So much fun, and for such a great cause!
