The Birdhouse/Whale Plaque Silent Auction

The Birdhouse/Whale Silent Auction display is now on the Plaza!  Many many thanks to all the artists who made this beautiful display possible.  The entries this year are fantastic!  You'll be able to bid on these items from now until August 7th when we'll have our Final Bid Night event.

Pack Rat Sale

The biggest rummage sale on the Coast!  The set-up starts on Sunday, July 1st and continues through the week with the exception of July 4th when we'll be in the Mendocino 4th of July parade.  Drop off your treasured give-aways in our set-up area behind the Admin Building.  The BIG DAY is Saturday July 7th.  This is our biggest fundraiser of the year!  Since its inception, the Pack Rat Sale has raised over $180,000!  Join us again this year for this truly fun event!  

Mendocino County Wine Raffle

You should have received your raffle tickets by now and thanks to those of you who have already filled yours out and sent them in.  Our theme this year is "Gotcha Covered!" and our goal is to raise enough money to put new roofs on the Propagation House and the Display House.  We're well on our way to accomplishing this goal thanks to an anonymous donor who has pledged $10,000 in matching funds!
