DETROIT - The Society of Plastics Engineers' Detroit Section and Automotive Division have set a Nov. 15 deadline for donations of virgin resin to the annual Material Auction and Vegas Night. The key charitable event is designed to fund a variety of educational programs for both SPE groups.
Spokesman Jay Braboy said proceeds from the auction support programs such as scholarships for students pursuing careers in plastics, student chapters, educational seminars in plastics technology and the SPE Education Foundation.
The event is scheduled for Dec. 9 at the Northfield Hilton in Troy, Mich.
Resin donations are tax deductible and ``great deals'' on obsolete, excess or current raw materials have been available to buyers at past auctions, Braboy said.
