Raising awareness and raising funds to protect the unique natural features of Geauga County is at the core of the work of the Foundation for Geauga Parks. Even though the Foundation cancelled their 2020 annual fundraising event Twilight Soiree in August, the Board of Trustees is reinventing the in-person silent auction as a virtual auction.
Going live December 1, 2020 (Giving Tuesday) and running for six days, the FGP will host its first-ever “Treasure Our Parks” Virtual Silent Auction. Items may be previewed now, and new items will be added daily. The secure auction link is no longer active.
The FGP silent auction features nature experiences and other items not typically found in other fundraisers: a naturalist-led kayak float, private sky-viewing at Nassau Astronomical Station, "Millennium Farmer for a Day" experience, nature art, the “Best of Geauga” basket, and much more.
We are grateful to the following donors to the silent auction: Arborwear, Bella’s Biscuits, Dan Best, Linda Brown, Charles Dakota Photography, Deru Landscape Architects, Rich Bradshaw, Geauga Park District, Hungry Bee Catering, Heidi O'Neill, Kevin O’Reilly Family, Salo Maple Products, Spice Catering, Jim Trombo Photography, Western Reserve Land Conservancy, and many more.
