Annual Fundraising Auction

Make a point to provoke your curiosity by coming to see fishing rods in cases (see quote above), along with numerous other items available for your bidding pleasure at our only fundraising event of the year! Doors officially open at 6 pm (but you are welcome to come at 5:30 if you just can’t wait) for bidding on silent auction items, and the live auction will start at 7 pm. There will be some special raffles (including one for the original watercolor of a Rio Grande Cutthroat Trout by Susan Andrews shown above) as well as the ever popular bucket raffle. (See the auction sneak peek below for a partial list of available items) As always, we’ll have tasty appetizers (this year catered by the Colorado Tap Room and Grille in Del Norte) and a cash bar. A mere $10 gets you in the door and secures a bidding paddle for you. At the end of the night, you can pay for your treasures with cash, check, or credit card. Here’s a partial list of some of the many items available at this year’s auction.
