Are you missing your favorite local restaurant? Pining for the Schweitzer slopes? Maybe you just want to lose yourself in some new artwork or a good book.
If any of that sounds familiar, then the Friends of Scotchman Peaks Wilderness auction has something for you. Held entirely online, it’s a great opportunity to support your wild backyard while picking up some items from your favorite local businesses.
This year’s auction is packed with variety. Gift certificates for local artisanal goods like Evans Bros coffee or MickDuff’s beer will help you get a taste of Sandpoint right when most of us could use it most. An original photography print from photographer Carey Chrisholm is sure to beautify your home. If you’re looking to make your own artwork instead, bid on a one-on-one plein aire workshop with painter Ed Robinson. And if you need to get away from it all, take a look at the season pass to the 2020-21 Schweitzer season or the travel packages from MacDonald’s Resort or Roosevelt Inn. The stay at MacDonald’s Resort in Bayview includes a three-course dinner cooked by chef Carey Chisolm, while the Roosevelt Inn package is a couples retreat complete with massage.
Participating in the auction is simple. Just click here to check out the list of items and place your bid.
Rest assured that no matter what catches your eye, your contribution goes a long way. Every dollar helps Friends of Scotchman Peaks Wilderness connect people to their wild backyard. That means keeping the trails in good shape. It means educating the public about how to stay safe and respect the wildlife. And it means promoting programs that keep the Scotchmans wild and free.
