Black Hills Audubon Society to hold annual auction March 7

The Black Hills Audubon Society will hold its 28th annual dinner and silent auction March 7 in Olympia.

The event is the chapter’s major fundraising event of the year. Last year, the auction raised more than $4,500 for the chapter’s education and conservation work. Organizers said they can accept only cash or checks for auction items.

The guest speaker will be wildlife biologist and singer/songwriter Ken Bevis. He will give a program on Washington’s fish and wildlife told through stories, songs and photographs.

The evening begins at 5 p.m. with a social hour and time to preview auction items. The dinner will begin at 5:30 p.m.

The event will take place at South Puget Sound Community College Student Union, 2011 Mottman Road SW, Olympia.

Tickets to the evening’s activities cost $30 and must be purchased in advance. Attendees are asked to RSVP and prepay by Monday.
