For the last five weeks we have been revealing auction sneak peeks and teasers, all in the hopes of getting you prepared for this moment - our online auction is now open for bidding! With over fifty packages available you’ll surely find something that piques your interest, from a Joshua Tree Getaway to a first edition copy of Freedom of the Hills.

Participation is simple and easy. Here’s what you need to know:

  • First, register to bid. You’ll have a week to participate and if someone outbids you, you’ll get a notification. Bid high and bid often!
  • All silent auction packages (look for the gray and green frames) will close at 7:10pm (PDT) on July 23.
  • All live auction packages (gold frames) will be closed by our auctioneer during our livestream event on July 23. Keep in mind that there may be a lag between the video and the bidding, so don’t wait until the last minute to place your bid.
  • You can stay up-to-date with the free event by registering online. If you’ve signed up for the auction you’re ready to go!
  • We are also incorporating a virtual photo booth, so get online and take a snap in the theme of “All Dressed Up, Nowhere To Go.” Bonus points if you can incorporate a little adventure into your photo submission. By uploading a photo you will be entered into a random drawing for an Anthony’s Restaurants dinner for two (estimated valued at $50)!
  • The livestream will begin with a pre-event show at 6:30pm (PDT) and opening remarks will begin promptly at 7pm (PDT) and can be viewed on YouTube Live

All of the funds generated by this event will be reinvested back into our Mountaineers members, volunteers, places, programs, and books to help continue our services in a year where we need them most. So don’t be shy - bid, bid, bid!

Thank you for the support and don’t forget to tune in on July 23. Be sure to join the broadcast a little early so you don’t miss any of the fun. We have a celebrity-studded line up with lots of surprises up our sleeves!


P.S. Don’t forget to register for the auction. Bidding is open NOW until July 23. If you’d like to be on the list to receive the link for the full-feature keynote presentation featuring Jimmy Chin, Lynn Hill, Tom Hornbein, and more, and don’t want to register for the auction, you can register for free online. Bookmark our YouTube channel and we’ll send out the link again on July 23. Please reach out to Tyler Dunning at tylerd@mountaineers.org with any questions. This auction is for everyone - so tell all your friends!
