4-H hosts virtual silent auction after cancelling Rocky Mountain Oyster Fry

Contact: Jenny Leonetti, 4-H and Youth Development Extension Agent, 970-328-8631, jenny.leonetti@eaglecounty.us

June 2, 2020 - Eagle County 4-H cancelled the 4-H Rocky Mountain Oyster Fry scheduled for Sat., March 21 at the Eagle River Center to comply with Public Health Orders.

As an alternative to the usual live silent auction at the Oyster Fry, 4-H is instead hosting an online auction so that donated items can still be sold to raise funds for the 4-H scholarships announced during the 4-H Awards Banquet. The online auction and full details are available at https://www.biddingowl.com. Bidding will remain open until June 10.

“Thank you in advance for your support of the Rocky Mountain Oyster Fry and of Eagle County 4-H,” said Jenny Leonetti, 4-H and Youth Development Extension Agent. “While we are saddened that we cannot host our usual festivities this year, we still want to give an opportunity for the community to support local youth. Funds from our silent auction help our 4-H scholars advance their education, and we are deeply grateful for your support.

Winning bidders must pay in cash or check and pick up auction items from June 15-17 from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. and must wear a face covering and practice social distancing. Pickup will be held at the Eagle County Extension Office at 441 Broadway in Eagle. Please make checks payable to Rocky Mountain Oyster Fry. No items will be shipped and must be picked up in person.

Please contact Jenny Leonetti at 970-328-8631 or jenny.leonetti@eaglecounty.us if you have any questions.
