Nearly $3,000 was raised during Medicine River Wildlife Centre’s first virtual auction.
These funds will go towards the operations of the central Alberta wildlife hospital. More than 50 items were donated to the auction, including birdhouses, feeders, jewellery and artwork.
“The most popular items however, bringing in the most money, were unique and nature-based experiences,” MRWC said in an email.
“For a first attempt at this type of fundraiser, we are happy with the result, and hope to hold another, even bigger and better, in the future.”
Due to constantly changing restrictions, MRWC’s casino has now been cancelled three times.
