In an effort to raise money for solutions to urgent outdoor recreation issues, more than 50 companies have donated at least 150 products to the nonprofit organization Tread Lightly! for its Fourth Annual Charity Auction on eBay, November 1-11.
The big ticket items this year are a Grizzly 550 ATV from Yamaha and a Gator XUV 625i utility vehicle from John Deere.
One hundred percent of the money raised will go to help keep off-road trails and recreation sites healthy and open to the public. The auction also includes plenty of 4x4 accessories, powersports equipment and outdoor gear. Bids will start at 40 to 60 percent off of retail prices.
“We’ve just developed some remarkable new campaigns, tools and programs to help protect outdoor recreation access, and we hope to implement these initiatives fully in 2012,” said Tread Lightly!’s executive director Lori McCullough. “Money raised from this auction is key to helping us save access and curtail closures.”
