Forever Resorts and Antelope Point Marina on Arizona’s Lake Powell donated a four-day, three-night houseboat vacation in a silent auction benefiting the Marina Recreation Association.

The silent auction will take place during the MRA's annual Educational Conference and Trade Show, which will be held Oct. 26-28 at the Fess Parker resort in Santa Barbara, Calif.

"This is a wonderful prize and a wonderful way to support our association," MRA operations administrator Mariann Timms said in a statement.

The theme for this year's conference is Mission Possible, focusing on enhancing marina customer satisfaction, improving operations and regulatory compliance, and optimizing fiscal results.

The conference will include seminars and roundtable discussions covering more than 20 key industry management, operations and marketing concerns. More than 45 vendors and contractors will be at the show.

The conference has a limited number of rooms set aside at the Fess Parker for attendees to reserve. For additional information, contact Timms at (209) 334-0661 or mra@marina.org.
