The combination of The Rental Show and the generosity of the rental industry added up to a very successful first quarter for the ARA Foundation. During The Rental Show in New Orleans Feb. 5-8, nearly $92,000 was raised for the Foundation. This total included $84,150 from the live charity auction during the Reception With a Purpose on Feb. 7. In addition, those attending The Rental Show were able to contribute to the Foundation while registering. In total, nearly $4,000 was contributed to the ARA Foundation through show registrations, though not all were received in the first quarter.
All funds raised for the ARA Foundation support its programs for the entire rental industry: scholarship program, the Rental Executive Advisory Program (REAP), disaster relief and disaster recovery programs, and the international rental business leadership program. Complete details on the Foundation’s programs are available at ARAfoundation.com.
