We Need Your Ramble Donations!
Each year we ask our supporters and our community to make donations to our live and silent auctions. Through these auctions, we raise a significant portion of our yearly operating funds. We're asking for your help again this year! Please consider donating a new or collectable item, service, or experience that we can auction at Ramble.
Are you an experienced fishing guide? An expert kayaker? A ballroom dance teacher? Then give the gift of your expertise! Donate your time and talents as an auction item, for example, donate "an afternoon of
fishing and fishing instruction" or "three private ballroom dance lessons".
Vacation trips (time shares work great!)
Twins, Vikings, Wild, Timberwolves, Lynx tickets
Theater, concert, zoo, museum, or event tickets
iPads, iPods, Kindles, & other fun tech
Autographed sports memorabilia
Gift cards/certificates also make great donations!
We can use gift cards/certificates for restaurants, movie theaters, salons and spas, classes, boutiques, big box stores, airlines, unique adventures like hot air balloon rides, sky diving, rock climbing, & more.
Ramble donations may be dropped off at the
River Bend Nature Center Interpretive Center
