FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. — Going into 2011, Southeast Publications USA, Inc. is celebrating its 25th year as a site map publishing company, and it’s already turning out to be a great year, the company announced today.
For the past 18 years, Southeast Publications has held an auction at it’s annual Fall meeting to raise money for the KOA Care Camps program. The auction is usually a small, fun affair for the staff and sales reps within the company. Since 1993, Southeast Publications has raised almost $300,000 to donate to the Care Camps program. This year Southeast Publications had two auctions, one at the annual Spring meeting and again at the Fall meeting. The auctions raised $30,000, it’s largest donation to date.
In May of 2010, the owner and founder of Southeast Publications, Peter Warrick passed away. In late September the company lost another pioneer in the industry, Ron Pfeifer, who was Representative No. 4, a sales manager and 20-year veteran with Southeast Publications. In lieu of flowers, both families asked that donations be given to the Care Camps program.
Since Warrick was such a big Vespa enthusiast, Southeast Publications also donated a Vespa scooter to KOA for their Care Camps auction in November at Savannah, Ga. The scooter brought in another $3,500.
“In a year that had taken so much away from the company, Southeast Publications overcame and gave back almost $40,000 to a very important and worthwhile cause,” said Kurtis Eiben.
Now under the guidance of Wally Warrick, Peter’s son, Southeast Publications is moving into the new year with a lot of enthusiasm.
“Some small tweaks are being made to an already, well established organization, that will allow for further growth as a company,” said Eiben. “In 2011, we will meet and exceed the needs put in front of us. We are continuing the legend that separates us from the rest and allows us to be the best in the site map industry.”
