Columbia River Gorge residents are gearing up for the 28th annual silent auction and dinner at the Columbia Gorge Interpretive Center Museum in Stevenson, Saturday, March 14th, 2020.
This year the theme is The 80’s.
“The response from area business has been fantastic so far”. Many members of the board of directors at the museum, and the committee of volunteers and staff are currently out soliciting donations. Every year we receive at least 200 donations, and we think we’ll beat that this year. Businesses in this area are very supportive of the museum which last year attracted over 25,000 visitors to Stevenson and the Gorge.
In addition to the silent auction, the event will include a buffet dinner with all the trimmings and desserts all catered by Skamania Lodge, which is located adjacent to the museum. “We enjoy staging events at the museum,” said Skamania Lodge Manager Ken Daugherty. “It’s a wonderful place and guests seem to really enjoy the atmosphere. The auction is always lively and fun and I promise the food will be excellent.”
In addition to the many silent auction items available for bidding, there will be plenty of door prizes and an assortment of special raffle items as well. Of note are a half dozen overnight stays at properties owned by Destination Hotels & Resorts, which also owns Skamania Lodge.
Will-call tickets may be ordered by calling the museum at 509-427-8211. Doors will open at 4PM, with dinner slated for 6PM. The Columbia Gorge Interpretive Center Museum is a non-profit, 501-C3 corporation, located at 990 SW Rock Creek Drive, Stevenson.
Donations will be accepted up to March 11th. The buffet dinner will be catered by the Skamania Lodge. There will be live music and a no host bar.
Tickets $50.00 each and are available at the museum. Ticket prices will increase to $60.00 after March 5th. Reserved tables for 8 are $400.00.
