Idaho Rivers United invites all river rooters and fish fanatics to the 15th annual Auction for the Rivers. Dedicated to protecting and restoring Idaho's rivers, IRU wages a continuing campaign to protect wild rivers, keep drinking water clean, defend at-risk populations of fish and more. The annual Auction for the Rivers is the organization's biggest fundraiser of the year and offers a multitude of ways to win, from silent and online auctions to door prizes and a raffle.
This year's auction offers a wide variety of prizes, including a week of paddling in Costa Rica with Costa Rica Rios, a week's stay in Akumal, Mexico, ski weekends in either Sun Valley or McCall and many gifts of gear and art. These prizes only scratch the surface, so hop into those waders and raise your bidding hand for the rivers.
Saturday, Nov. 14, 6:30-10:30 p.m., $10 members, $15 public, Boise Train Depot, 2603 Eastover Terrace. For more information, call 208-343-7481 or visit idahorivers.org.
