Welcome to A Very Vulture Virtual Gala Auction

We will gather our kettle of supporters in the virtual world of the internet to raise funds for our life saving mission: Inspiring the protection and appreciation of raptors and the spaces they live through excellence in rehabilitation, research and education.

The live event via YouTube on February 20th opens at 5:30 with a cocktail hour. We will show you how to mix our special cocktail, a Vulturetini procured specifically for this event. At 6:30 the main event starts with appearances from our educational ambassadors, message from our Executive Director Carin Avila, amazing raptor survivor stories, discussion of our featured auction items, and a paddle raise to help us soar higher into our future.

The week leading up to the main event on February 20th we will have many previews on our YouTube and Facebook page of the featured  auction items, the amazing artwork in the Eggstravaganza, and a mixology class on how to prepare our signature cocktail.

This event is extremely important to the RMRP and our ability to achieve our mission. Our annual Gala and Auction provides nearly 20% of our yearly operating funds, plus is an opportunity for our committed donors and followers to celebrate the year’s achievements, raptors, and the environment.

We hope that the Gala will also act as a way for you to promote your company, and to show how much you care about Colorado’s wildlife and the environmental education the RMRP can provide.  Your sponsorship can help save raptor lives and enrich human lives.

The Gala is our biggest event of the year. Being hosted virtually this year, your sponsorship will reach out to more people then ever before. We invite you to become the life of the party while saving lives in need.  Visit our sponsorship page for more details.
