Affiliate Summit 2007 West, a three day conference starting on January 21 in Las Vegas, includes the Affiliate Jam Session and Sing-a-Long fundraiser, sponsored by ShareASale to benefit Big Brothers Big Sisters of Southern Nevada.
In conjunction with the Affiliate Jam Session and Sing-a-Long, there have been a number of auctions on eBay where companies bid to have host Brian Littleton, President/CEO of ShareASale, wear shirts, hats and pins with company logos during the event.
There was also an auction to have a company logo placed on all of the Affiliate Summit staff shirts for the duration of the three day conference.
The auctions raised a total of $12,225. Affiliate Summit and ShareASale committed to match up to $5,000 in donations to Big Brothers Big Sisters of Southern Nevada, bringing the total to $22,225 to date.
The largest donor and winner of the three big charity auctions was FlamingoWorld.com. FlamingoWorld.com has been saving shoppers money since 1998, focusing on coupons, discount shopping and price comparison from over 1,000 merchants. FlamingoWorld.com also includes local printable coupons and grocery coupons and features deal alerts and an active forum for deal sharing.

"FlamingoWorld believes in sharing our success with others in need and supporting good causes because at one time we were in need ourselves," commented Connie Berg, founder of FlamingoWorld.com. "Our philosophy is since others were generous to us in our time of need it is our duty to payback and help others now that we are able to," continued Berg.
