This week the Texas Self Storage Association (TSSA) donated almost $33,000 to the Shriners Children’s Hospital in Galveston, Texas, with funds raised at its recent annual convention. The money was raised through a variety of conference activities including live and silent auctions and a charity poker tournament.
The Shriners Hospital, which specializes in burn treatment of children under 18, has been the beneficiary of TSSA fundraising efforts since 2001. To date, the association has raised approximately $230,000 for the cause. The TSSA Fundraising Committee is already making plans for the 2010 campaign, which will take place during its convention in Fort Worth, Texas, Oct. 18-20.
The TSSA, established in 1986, is a non-profit trade association dedicated to enhancing the quality of the self-storage industry in Texas. It provides members with industry education, research, discussion and information exchange.
