MM will be auctioning off a GMC at Snowball, April 10th, to support the Northwest Weather & Avalanche Center!
The Friends of the Northwest Weather and AvalancheCenter are sponsoring the inaugural Snowball Dinner and Auction to support the Northwest Weather and AvalancheCenter. Dwindling state and federal budgets have resulted in NWAC facing a severe budget shortfall of over $100,000 for next season.
If funding is not raised to fill that gap, we face the very real possibility that NWAC will not exist next year, and we will not have the weather and avalanche information that we all use to plan our trips and stay safe in the mountains. The Friends is working hard to fill that gap and needs your help.
Please join us in attending Snowball on Friday, April 10 at the Ballard Elks Club. There will be both silent and live auctions with a lot of great items, including a spot on a Mountain Madness Glacier Mountaineering course, as well as good food and beverages to be enjoyed among friends. It will be a good send off for the season and a good time in support of a cause that we all use and need.
Support for NWAC is of paramount importance in light of the bad avalanches that we have had this year and the looming state budget deficit of $3 Billion.
