Mark your calendars ladies and gentlemen! The annual Rub-a-Dub ORT America event is happening this week and PayAnywhere will be there!

Currently hailed as the largest fundraising event in the Michigan area, the annual Rub-a-Dub event originally began as a home-grown gathering at the estate of founders Doreen Hermelin and her late husband David. Since its creation in 1983, it has evolved into an important fundraiser aimed at promoting and appreciating Jewish values through a network of schools and training programs that have expanded across 55 countries.

Every year the event includes both a raffle and live auction, and every year the organization has had to save attendeeÕs credit card numbers overnight in order to process them the next day. However, this year attendees can expect a new tech-savvy solution for payment processing, thanks to Michigan local, PayAnywhere. PayAnywhere has been chosen as the official payment sponsor for the event. This year, ORT officials will use PayAnywhere to accept all credit card payments for purchases from the live and silent auctions, day-of-the-event ticket sales and raffle ticket sales, right from their smartphones. Fundraising just got a whole lot easier!

With PayAnywhereÕs immediate transaction reporting, ORT officials will be able to see how much they raise at the event in real-time, with just a few taps, saving them a ton of time tallying totals. The PayAnywhere app can also be used to help ORT officials keep inventory of what auction items and tickets were purchased and by whom. Attendees who make purchases will receive an email receipt at the close of their transaction that contains important event and contact information along with an itemized list of their purchases for tax purposes. Best of all, the simple and speedy app will allow attendees to pay and get back to the festivities without worrying if their card information is safe and secure.

If you happen to be in the Farmington Hills area on Wednesday, August 22nd, stop by the Franklin Hills Country Club at 5:30 p.m. for a little fun. Tickets are just $125 and for those age 35 and under, you may buy one ticket and get another free! Fast Company recently highlighted the PayAnywhere app as one of the Seven Apps Every Fundraiser Must Download Now and the staff and attendees of this yearÕs Rub-a-Dub ORT America event are about to find out just how simple PayAnywhere makes anytime, anywhere payments.
