Where: The Redd on Salmon Street (831 SE Salmon Street, Portland, OR 97214)

When: Saturday, October 5th, 2019 @5PM

General admission tickets are $150 per person ($300 for a couple).

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!
