UPDATE: Auction Moved To Dec. 5, Supports Montana Scouts

The auction originally scheduled for Nov. 14, 2020, has been rescheduled for Dec. 5. You can see the lots that directly support Montana Council and Scouting across Montana at the North American Auction Co. website.

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. We will update this list as additional lots come available.
