Donating an auction item to the Wing Ding

Thank you for donating to the Whale Foundation’s 15th annual Wing Ding silent auction. We will be celebrating at the Coconino Center for the Arts on Saturday, February 18th, 2017 starting at 6:00pm.

Your contribution helps raise funds that go directly to our many programs supporting the river guiding community. These programs include: free mental health counseling through our 1-800 help line, free physical health screenings/ health insurance assistance through the Tim Whitney Wellness Initiative, and funding for educational opportunities through the Kenton Grua Memorial Scholarship.

Our past contributors have donated gift certificates, outdoor gear and clothing, wall art, sculptures, and arts and crafts of all kinds. We have tried to make donating to the Wing Ding as easy as possible but if you have any questions please feel free to contact us.
