Feb. 20, 2021 Auction Supports Montana Scouts

The catalog for the February 20, 2021, North American Auction Co. auction is live on the auction house website: Early Western & American Indian Auction w/ Luxury Jewelry

As you know, restrictions due to the Covid-19 pandemic forced districts and units to cancel most of their fundraising events. We assure you, Scouting is going strong during this time and although our revenue stream is altered, the necessity to fund our programming has not changed.

To help reach our fundraising goals, we are excited to partner with North American Auction Co. in Bozeman and participate in this upcoming online auction.

Here are some of the lots that will directly benefit the Montana Council and Scouting in the state. Stay tuned for future auctions as well.
