The Greater Chaco Auction Benefit


This event is presented by New Mexico Story Power for The Greater Chaco Coalition

This silent auction of artworks by local and national artists- as well as gift packages by local businesses- will benefit the protection of the Greater Chaco landscape and communities from risks associated with further development by extractive energy industries. The Greater Chaco Coalition Project Fund will help underwrite several critical efforts: citizen science monitoring, the creation of a community health impact assessment, and indigenous-led media projects. Please join us for an amazing evening of incredible artworks, performances, local refreshments, and inspiring community!

With performances by:
6:30 Eileen & the In-Betweens
8:00 MC Rhetorik
9:00 DJ Miss Ginger
and Special Guests!

Preview of the works: 6:00-7:00pm
Silent Auction: 7:00 – 9:00pm

Artwork and gifts can be taken home by winning bidders immediately following auction- volunteers will be present to process payments and to wrap artworks for transportation.
