The Idaho Outfitters & Guides Association (IOGA) is holding their 8th annual Outdoor Getaway Dinner and Auction event at the Coeur d’Alene Casino in Worley, Idaho on March 5, 2011 beginning at 5:30 PM.

A portion of the proceeds from the Outdoor Getaway fundraiser will benefit the Children’s Village in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho. The Children’s Village provides a safe, loving, nurturing and healing home for children.

The Outdoor Getaway features up to 36 live auction items including professionally guided boating, fishing, hunting, and guest ranch trips as well as unique merchandise. The Outdoor Getaway also features a quality silent auction and several fun raffles. One of the featured silent auction items again this year is a set of all 3 Olive the Woolly Bugger books, autographed by yours truly.  It’s not exactly a big ticket item, but I’m honored that Olive can help support this great cause.
