Sunset Soiree, online auction planned to support the ‘Gem of Prescott’
PRESCOTT – You’re invited! Help celebrate the Great River Road Visitor & Learning Center’s 15-year anniversary on Aug. 21 at Freedom Park’s Sunset Soirée: Party in the Park! Hang out with your neighbors, meet new friends, and support the “Gem of Prescott.” This free, in-person fundraiser will feature live music, yard games, hors d'oeuvres, a sale at the gift shop, a cash bar, and a toast to Freedom Park with Executive Director Israel Haas.
This in-person event will also mark the closing of Freedom Park’s online silent auction, which is taking place from Aug. 14 through sunset during the Soirée. This year, more than 65 items have been generously donated to Freedom Park’s auction by local businesses, groups, and individuals. The items and experiences open for bid are truly one-of-a-kind, and there’s something for everyone.
A few highlights currently up for bidding: A St. Croix River guided fishing excursion with lunch – check out the trophy fish catch from a past winner in the photo!
