Hello Unalayee Community!
We hope you have plans to join us at our annual Unalayee Fundraiser coming up on Sunday, April 9th. One of our most successful events at the fundraiser (in addition to our raffle) is the silent auction. We have a lot of great items that you will be able to bid on, and wanted to give you a little preview of just some of the cool things that will be available. Auction items range from small handmade crafts, to a relaxing boat excursion in Monterey Bay, so there should be something that interests everyone!
For anyone looking to add a little Unalayee love to display in their home, we have this amazing cross stitch donated by Victoria Eliot. Many of my best memories and friends were made up at Camp Unalayee, and any reminder of these brings a smile to my face. What better way to start your day than seeing the four squares up on your wall to remind you of all the amazing experiences you’ve had at Camp Unalayee?
For the healthy eater, we will be auctioning off a 4 week trial for the High Ground Organics CSA program. A CSA, or Community Supported Agriculture, is a way for families to bypass the grocery stores and buy their produce directly from a local farm. When the crops come in, the farmer provides the supporting members with weekly shares of fresh vegetables and fruits, picked ripe and delivered promptly to a pick-up site in your neighborhood.
Do you know anyone who loves the outdoors and might be interested in some new camping gear? Hmmmm…I wonder where we can find people like that? For people looking to get ready to spend their summers camping (maybe in the Trinities?) we will have a few awesome gear related items including a brand new REI Passage 2 tent, as well as a great ALPS Mountaineering brand backpacking pack.
Maybe you are interested in an experience, rather than an item? Unalayee community member Curtis Koppel is auctioning off a fun adventure for 2-6 guests on his boat, Ohanah! No nautical experience necessary, Curtis will take you out into the Monterey Bay for a beautiful day of sailing.
This is just a taste of some of the items that will be up for auction at our fundraiser, be sure to come check out the rest on Sunday, April 9th! You can RSVP for the event, and we hope you join us to in helping raise money for our Campership fund to help send underprivileged youth up to Unalayee this summer!
