Mark Your Calendar and Come Join the Fun!
The DuPage Birding Club will hold its biennial fundraising auction on Thursday, Oct. 12. Come as early as 6:15 pm to view auction and raffle items and check out the Birder’s Bazaar. Cantigny Park will host the event, and ALL are welcome (including non-members). Admission and parking are free. The event includes a live auction and raffle prizes, plus a cash bar (opens at 6:30) and Cantigny’s famous cookies.
The live auction begins shortly after 7:30—items include birding gear, memberships and subscriptions, feeders and seed, framed art and photographs, guided field trips, and more. Everyone signing in for a bid number will receive a free raffle ticket. Additional tickets can be purchased. Winners choose from an array of raffle prizes!
Auction Night also features the Birder’s Bazaar—a rummage sale with gently-used items selling for $1, $3, $5, $10 or $20. Find and take home a treasure! The club is also accepting gently-used bird-related items for the Birder’s Bazaar tables. Those bringing donations for the Birder’s Bazaar should arrive between 5 and 6 pm.
Event proceeds support DBC, bird conservation, and organizations that care about birds. This year, part of the proceeds will help Fermilab construct an observation platform along the east shore of AE Sea, allowing better viewing of the lake and birds, while protecting the shoreline.
