Saturday, November 12, the Potomac Valley Audubon Society (PVAS) hosted their 2011 fall fundraiser at historic Wild Goose Farm near Shepherdstown, WV.
     
Held in a hand-crafted timber frame barn, guests were treated to a barbecue dinner complete with frosty beverages (including Flying Dog Brewery's "Secret Stash") and apple slab pie.

Once desserts were downed, the live auction commenced. The auction featured an array of donated items ranging from New Orleans-esque dinner parties to vintage depression glass to a dozen fresh eggs delivered right to your doorstep for 9 months.
      
After the bites and bidding came the bubbly--guests could tour the Wild Goose Farm grounds via hayride and take in the festive fall foliage with a glass (or two) of champers in hand.
     
Tunes for the afternoon were provided by the Harlan Springs Band who treated the crowd to familiar favorites by artists like John Denver and Old Crow Medicine Show.         
  
Those who contributed at the donor, patron, or supporter levels were given the chance for a photo op with the guest of honor, Nicodemus (Nicky) a Eurasian Eagle-Owl. Nicky has a wingspan of over 5 feet, is currently 9 years old and will live another 50+ years!
         
All proceeds from the event and auction will go to support PVAS programs for children. Fore more information on these programs and PVAS in general visit www.potomacaudubon.com
