We had a very successful and entertaining Holiday Auction at the Refuge Visitor Center on November 17. We raised $2753 which is just a bit less than the $3000 we raised last year.

Our fabulous auctioneers, Mark Lystig and Scott Clark sold at least 100 items donated by members as well as these generous companies:

  • All Seasons Wild Bird Store – Bloomington
  • Cornerstone Copy Center, Burnsville
  • Eagle Optics
  • Great Harvest Bread Company
  • Lakewinds Natural Foods – Richfield
  • Lunds/Byerly’s
  • Nothing Bundt Cakes, Eden Prairie
  • Valley Natural Foods Co-op (Burnsville)

We also raised about $630 on Give to the Max Day ($1400 less than last year).

The chapter has also received $30 in the mail from the appeal in the Trumpeter and $325 from my Facebook fundraiser.

We want to thank everyone who donated either at the auction or online.
