Wild Shots is Crag’s annual fundraiser, where our friends and supporters come together to support legal aid for the environment and celebrate Crag’s accomplishments. Join us for an elegant evening with delectable food, Northwest wines and exciting auction items.

Our theme this year is “Lost in the Wild” and will celebrate the work Crag and our clients are doing to protect the Pacific Northwest’s wild places and critters, our region’s public lands and our native fish. The auction features a variety of silent and live auction items that celebrate the Pacific Northwest, with an emphasis on nature experiences, outdoor adventures, eco-friendly lifestyles, environmental artwork, Oregon wines, and culinary delights.

Thanks to our 2019 sponsors!

Help Crag reach our goal of raising over $150,000 by becoming a Wild Shots sponsor! You and your guests will get the VIP Wild Shots experience and promotion of your business to more than 2,700 Crag supporters.  As a sponsor, you’ll come to the event knowing that your support makes it possible for the hardworking staff at Crag Law Center to focus their time and energy where it makes the most impact – providing high quality legal services to communities and conservation groups that are fighting for clean air, drinkable water, livable communities and thriving wild places!

You can also use your bidder number to make donations, purchase bottles of wine from the wine wall or purchase drink tickets.

How does mobile bidding work?

This year we will be using mobile bidding – which means you can place bids from your phone. When you register for Wild Shots, you will be asked to provide your email and/or phone number and a credit card to securely vault for payment. You will be sent either a text or email with an invitation to bid, and you will then be able to place bids using your mobile phone. You will receive notifications if you get outbid, so you can keep track of those items you want to win!  Volunteers will be on hand with iPads to assist with bidding (and as an alternative to using your own phone).

Do I have to use my phone to bid?

You are not required to bid with your phone. We have mobile bidding assistants with tablets and laptops that can place bids on items for you. If you are bidding remotely, you can bid from any device with internet access!

Why do you need my cell phone/email?

We use your email address to make it easy for you to check out. At the end of the night, we will send you an email to check out, which you can review and then either pay with your card or send your payment to Crag. This means you are free to leave and can check out from home or even the next day! No waiting in line at the end of the night.

We are also using email and mobile numbers for the silent auction this year. You’ll get an email inviting you to bid in the silent auction. If we have your mobile number on file, you can opt into getting text alerts if you are outbid on an item – it’s your choice whether or not you wish to use this feature. The texts will only be related to your activity in this silent auction – we don’t send you texts or share your info with anyone.

 

How do I know what my bid # is?

You should get an invitation to bid or a check-in confirmation in your email. You can find your bid # on each of these messsages. If you did not get an email, please find a Mobile Bid Assistant or ask a Check-In clerk, and they will make sure you have this info!

I need to leave early / before the silent auction closes. Do I need to check out?

You can leave whenever you like. We will send you an email to check out which you can review and then either pay with your card or send your payment to Crag. If you win auction items, we will let you know. We ask that, if possible, you come pick up items at our office if they are bigger than a gift certificate.
