We had a successful and entertaining Holiday Auction at the Refuge Visitor Center on November 15. We raised $2226 (a bit less than the $2700 we raised last year).
Our fabulous auctioneers, Monica Rauchwarter and Scott Clark sold many fabulous items donated by members as well as from these generous companies and local organizations:
- All Seasons Wild Bird Store – Bloomington
- Artistry Theater, Bloomington
- David Fong’s
- Vortex Optics
- Fantastic Sam’s

- National Eagle Center, Wabasha
- Nothing Bundt Cakes, Eden Prairie
- Science Museum of Minnesota
- Valley Natural Foods Co-op (Burnsville)
Donations via Give to the Max day totaled $1312.76.
Thanks to everyone who donated either at the auction or online.
