Martin Stringer, a renowned auctioneer, will be conducting the live auction, adding to the excitement of the event. The CDRI BBQ & Auction promises to be a great opportunity for the community to come together and support the Chihuahuan Desert Nature Center & Botanical Gardens.
The center is grateful for the community’s support of their mission, which is to educate and inspire people of all ages about the natural and cultural history of the Chihuahuan Desert region. The event is a great way to raise funds to support the center’s continued growth and development.
Attendees are encouraged to come early to enjoy the gardens and the beauty of the desert before the festivities begin. With tickets now available, guests can secure their spot at the CDRI BBQ & Auction and look forward to a fun-filled evening supporting a great cause.
