CFPA is excited to bring you our 1st Annual Outdoor Gear Expo and Silent Auction!
On April 30th, from 3:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. at Fayerweather Beckham Hall at Wesleyan University, CFPA will be hosting a silent auction to benefit our organization’s conservation programs: Blue-Blazed Hiking Trails, Conserving Land & Forests, Environmental Education, and WalkCT.
At the Gear Expo, there will be clinics offered on topics such as “fly fishing”, “packing your backpack”, “barefoot running”, “skateboarding”, and “carving your own walking stick”. In addition, the Silent Auction will showcase a wide variety of items up for bid including fun and functional outdoor gear and splendid gifts such as jewelry, books, artwork, and other items which were generously donated by vendors and friends of CFPA.
The Silent Auction portion of the event will run from 3pm to 6pm, during which time you are encouraged to bid on anything that makes you say, “Oh, I want that”. Credit cards, cash and checks will all be accepted. When the bidding finishes, there will be a short break, after which the winners will be able to collect their items. A list of the auction items received to date is available, and will be updated as new donations arrive.
Remember to keep an eye out for something that interests you, it’s a terrific way to support CFPA and purchase items that will help you enjoy the outdoors even more!
