Women's coalition plans online auction

Published May 20, 2013

BOULDER, CO (BRAIN) — The Outdoor Industry Women’s Coalition will launch its second annual Spring Auction on Thursday. The online auction will run for 10 days, and supporters can bid on items including a Burton snowboard, six-day river rafting trip, wine tasting trip, a “cowboy camp” experience and more. Also up for bid will be gift cards from Arc’teryx, Wolverine boots, Royal Robbins, Moving Comfort and other outdoor brands.

"The online auction is one of my favorite fundraisers,” said Hillary Harding, the coalition's development director. “It comes together over the course of a few weeks each spring and fall when a group of dedicated OIWC volunteers reach out and collect amazing items. Then we load everything to a free and secure auction site and start bidding. It’s a great way to highlight some cool gear and great trips and every dollar raised supports OIWC." 

Each item has been donated and funds raised will support OIWC's mission of advocacy, education and resources for women in the outdoor, snow and bike industries. The auction link can be found in the OIWC newsletter or on the OIWC home page starting Thursday.
