The Outdoor Industry Women’s Coalition (OIWC) announced the launch of the Second Annual Spring Auction on May 23, 2013. The online auction will run for 10 days through June 1, and supporters can bid on items such as 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 for gear from Arc’teryx, Wolverine boots, Royal Robbins, and Moving Comfort, among others.
“The online auction is one of my favorite fundraisers,” says Hillary Harding, Development Director of the OIWC. “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 on the OIWC homepage (www.oiwc.org) starting on May 23
