Get Prepared, California! Auction 2018

An Exciting Auction for a Great Cause

Have you ever wanted to…
  • Take a ride in the Goodyear Blimp?
  • See an NFL game in London?
  • Experience U2 live in concert?
Then this may be your year as CEA is sponsoring the seventh annual Get Prepared, California! Auction that runs through April 30th.

One of the influences of this joint effort between CEA and the American Red Cross was a 2009 study by the UCLA School of Public Health and Survey Research Center reporting that “relatively few (California) households have acted to mitigate losses and reduce injuries” resulting from earthquakes.

Combining the American Red Cross' disaster preparedness know-how with CEA's residential earthquake insurance and seismic retrofitting expertise, you can use the auction to introduce your policyholders to just how simple getting earthquake prepared can be.

Pitch in and Help Californians Get Earthquake Prepared

Since 2012, more than $1,060,000 in proceeds have been raised for the American Red Cross to use in the event of a natural disaster. That’s enough money to distribute 200,000 blankets or 100,000 hot meals or provide 400,000 “comfort kits” full of toiletries and personal items.

Money raised from the auction helps support 32 chapters of the American Red Cross in communities throughout California.

This year’s auction is being coordinated by iHeartMedia and promoted by 58 iHeartMedia radio stations in California through their on-air, digital, and social media platforms.

Chances are, your policyholders will hear about the auction and the dozens of one-of-a-kind concert, travel, sports, and entertainment prize packages up for bidding.

Why not use this opportunity to educate your policyholders about earthquake preparedness and introduce them to a CEA earthquake insurance policy that fits their needs and budget?

Have the Earthquake Insurance Conversation

Because an earthquake could happen today, having a CEA earthquake insurance policy means your policyholders will be able to recover from a damaging earthquake.

So if you haven’t already, familiarize yourself with available CEA policy options. Then, guide your policyholders in finding their best policy options using the free CEA Premium Calculator.

By helping the American Red Cross and your policyholders, together we can help more Californians be prepared for the next damaging earthquake.
