Unleash Your Generosity and Support Your Favorite Committee in ISPE-CaSA Charitable Giving Contest

Each year, ISPE-CaSA hosts a charity event at our Life Sciences Technology Show. As part of the 2023 Tech Show, our association committees are once again competing to raise money for 5 adopted charities:

From now until February 28 you can donate online to help a charity you support win the competition. ISPE-CaSA Board of Directors will give $800 to each of the charities and an extra $1,000 to the charity that raises the most through donations. We will also be selling raffle tickets to support these charities at the Tech Show.

How to participate:

Visit our Charity Donation site, and click on the red button that says "Tickets." You will see a menu to make your donations. Simply use the scroll bar to find your favorite charity or committee and choose the amount you wish to give. Do not donate directly to the charities. While that certainly would benefit the charity of your choice, it would not count toward a committee's collections.

Donators will be entered into a 50/50 raffle drawing at the Feb. 28 Tech Show, where the winner will win 50% of the raffle ticket sales. The remaining 50% will be donated to the charities.

Thanks to These Companies for Reserving our Largest Expo Booths

We are actively seeking sponsors for our popular Therapeutic Thursday events. Sponsorships cost $250

Therapeutic Thursdays across our CaSA Chapter Region (Alabama, Florida, Georgia, North and South Carolina, and Tennessee) are held the last Thursday of the month. We invite sponsors to select a month, pick a venue (often a restaurant with a spacious bar area, a brewery, or other similar business) and provide appetizers. There is a cash bar.

We will promote your Therapeutic Thursday a month in advance.

Learn which months are available and choose your preferred date.

Therapeutic Thursdays across the CaSA Region: We offer Therapeutic Thursday sponsorship across the entire CaSA area (50 miles outside the RTP region) all 12 months of the year. Learn which months are available and choose your preferred date.

Sponsorships Support Professional Excellence and Provide Visibility for Your Company

In 2022, we enjoyed a big year, as we saw many events sold out, including our spring Golf Tournament. We anticipate continued engagement in the year ahead.

Support from industry partners is crucial to the success of ISPE-CaSA. Your sponsorship also opens up opportunities for you to reach target audiences. Visit www.ispe-casa.org or email info@ispecasa.org for more information.
