Chapter 14 'Adventures Near & Far’ Event - July 29, 2015
It's that time again.....
Our theme for 2015’s event is ‘Adventures Near & Far’ – and our goal is to auction off some amazing adventures!
The ‘jewels in the crown’ (for the LIVE auction) are THREE donated private homes, located in:
- a Nature/Wildlife Preserve in Kenya,
- the beautiful wine-country of Napa, California,
- right here on the shore of the Flathead Lake!
Other donated ‘adventures’ are closer to home and feature the BEST of what the Flathead Valley and surrounding areas have to offer in exciting and ‘behind-the-scenes’ experiences!
This summer event typically raises a significant portion of WSCL’s annual operating budget. Come and join your friends and neighbors as they turn out to sample wine, hors d’oeuvres and desserts, and participate in the raffles and silent and live auctions for the amazing ADVENTURES this evening will have to offer.
