Bid on art, books, wine, birding equipment, outings, and vacation rentals.
The Silent Auction is a popular part of the Festival. In 2013, the more than 200 items up for auction netted nearly $20,000. Donations from businesses, members and supporters, as well as many artists and authors featured in the Festival, round out the wonderful variety of auction items offered each year.
Would you like to donate to the Wild Arts Festival Auction?
High-quality art, framed photographs, pottery, jewelry, books, wine and items of interest to naturalists such as bird houses, bird feeders and binoculars are welcome. Gift certificates to restaurants, book stores, and outdoor stores are also very popular. We would especially appreciate donations of:
• outings like kayaking, canoeing, biking, hiking
• weekend getaways at B&Bs, hotels, beach houses and mountain cabins
• trips to wineries and resorts in the Northwest.
In order to maximize fundraising and reduce the work needed to prepare items for sale, used items, with a few exceptions, are no longer accepted. Limited-edition prints, metal sculptures, wood carvings or antiques may be accepted on an individual basis.
If you have questions or items to donate, contact Marilyn Scott at firstname.lastname@example.org or 503-722-8136. You can drop off your donation at the Audubon office after October 1. All donations must be received by November 12. Download our Silent Auction Form.
