2021 Minority & Small Business Awards Celebration Auction Items

We are seeking assistance from local businesses and individuals in securing Raffle/Auction items for the 28th Annual Minority & Small Business Awards.  As a raffle/auction donor, your business will be recognized as a contributor to 28th Annual Minority & Small Business Awards and mentioned in the event program.

This year’s event, presented by the Minority and Small Business Alliance of Southern Arizona (MSBA), will be held on Thursday, September 23rd, 2021 at the Casino Del Sol Resort, located at 5655 W. Valencia Road, Tucson, Arizona 85757.

The MSBA, a 501(c)(3) Non-profit organization, is recognizing the outstanding achievements of small and minority-owned businesses at the annual Minority & Small Business Awards.  In addition to recognizing small and minority-owned businesses, MSBA is also committed to assisting financially disadvantaged students in seeking higher education.

More than $100,000 in scholarships has been awarded to these students attending the University of Arizona and Pima Community College since this program began 18 years ago.  These scholarships would not have been presented without the continued support and donations of local Southern Arizona businesses.
