Southern Conservation Trust virtual benefit and auction set for Aug. 15


Southern Conservation Trust (SCT) on Aug. 15 will hold its 2nd Annual Conserving Georgia Benefit and Auction. The event this year will be held virtually.

“Please join us while we broadcast live from the Southern Conservation Trust’s Nature Center to highlight conservation efforts in Georgia and the Southeast and to see a sneak peek of the Nature Center’s planned transformation. This event will be entirely online and will feature a silent auction and raffle with a focus on wildlife, outdoor recreation and sustainability,” said SCT Executive Director Katie Pace Quattlebaum.

The 2nd Annual Conserving Georgia Benefit and Auction will be held Aug. 15 at 6 p.m.

“As much as we wanted to celebrate and connect with you in person, we will be hosting this event virtually to ensure everyone’s safety due to Covid-19,” Quattlebaum said.

The silent auction for the event will open on Aug. 8 at 4 p.m. and will run for a full week leading up to the event.

Quattlebaum said all proceeds will go towards expanding environmental education, access to nature in Georgia and the Southeast, and developing the Nature Center in Fayetteville that will open in March 2021.

“Since 1993, the Southern Conservation Trust has elevated nature through exceptional stewardship because of supporters like yourself. We wouldn’t be able to continue the work we do without you. This year, we want to raise $40,000 for the Southern Conservation Trust’s efforts to preserve nature and ensure that everyone has access. As we take our event virtual this year, we still hope you’ll join and celebrate with us to continue our annual fundraising tradition and take part in the silent auction to win extraordinary prizes or experiences,” Quattlebaum said.
