Events & News

Various events are held throughout the year as a way for Binc to increase awareness of the Foundation, raise funds and be involved with the community. Everyone knows that the best events are the ones with the most participation, and with this in mind we want to make it easier for you to get involved! Below is information about upcoming and annual events that would benefit from your involvement.

2014 Fall IBA Meetings & Tradeshow Schedule

The Binc staff will attend all of the Fall IBA Regional Meetings and Trade Shows! This year  at each of the Fall IBA trade shows Binc will be hosting a cell phone drive. Each phone recycled at Binc’s table earns a raffle ticket toward a drawing for a $50 AmEx Gift Card (one winner from each show). The more phones you recycle, the better your odds of winning!
