Wild Shots is Crag’s annual fundraiser, where our allies come together to support legal aid for the environment and celebrate Crag’s accomplishments. Join us at the historic Benson Hotel in downtown Portland for a 1940s inspired evening with live music, delectable food, Northwest wines and exciting auction items.

The Wild Shots auction will feature artwork and unique experiences that celebrate the Pacific Northwest’s natural legacy, with an emphasis on environmental photography, outdoor adventures and culinary delights.

One of the best ways you can support Crag is to be a Wild Shots Sponsor! Sponsorship opportunities range from $2,500 – $150.

Tickets are $100 per person and will go on sale in September.

To donate an item for the silent or live auction, please click the “donate item” button and provide us with some details. We will get back to you within a few days to discuss your donation offer.

Vive la Résistance

What’s the Password? You’ll be greeted in the lobby of the Benson Hotel by Crag’s “secret agents,” who will provide you with an exclusive password to gain entry into Résistance headquarters. In this clandestine location, you’ll join other Crag allies for a cocktail hour right out of the 1940s. Enjoy hors d’oeuvres, vintage cocktails and local wine and beer while you peruse our carefully curated silent auction. Stock your cellar with bottles of Northwest wine and cider at the Wine Wall, and capture the moment with friends in your fabulous Résistance attire at the photo booth.
