13th Annual Silent Auction Postponed

In the interest of public health, the WMCC has decided to postpone our yearly silent auction until further notice.

We’d like to thank those of you who made donations or planned on attending for your support and understanding at this time.

Our Silent Auction is an important fundraising event for maintaining access to our local crags. However, the safety of our community is our top priority at this time, because without our awesome community, our organization would not exist. We are hopeful we can reschedule once the situation with COVID-19 improves, so stay tuned for updates.

Email Danielle Rao at eyell151@yahoo.com if you would like to make a donation.
