CTEF Raises $33K with First Online Auction

Pendleton, SC, November 5, 2020-CTEF, the Ceramic Tile Education Foundation, reports that its first online auction, which took place from October 21 to 26, was a success. The event was used to raise funds in support of its mission, which the COVID-19 pandemic has severely threatened.

During normal times, CTEF generates income through in-person training and hands-on certification registrations as well as the generous financial support from leading tile industry sponsors. Since March 2020, all training and certification events have been suspended, to be rescheduled once conditions are safer.

The CTEF online auction featured items donated by tile and stone industry supporters, suppliers, and manufacturers. The auction included in total 112 items from 30 vendors with 62 bidders producing $33,000 in funds.
