Bid for Conservation and Toast to Tortoises


Dear Friends,
We would like to invite you to participate in two online auctions we are hosting this year for our annual fundraisers to support our on-the-ground conservation work! Our “Bid for Conservation” and “Toast to Tortoises” auctions will be online for bidding from November 30 to December 14, 2020.
Orianne’s Bid for Conservation:
From guided fishing trips, dinner cruises, and golf outings, the Bid for Conservation Auction has a little something for everyone. This auction includes activities in New York, Montana, Georgia, North Carolina and Florida as well as numerous items that would make excellent gifts while supporting conservation! Some highlights from this auction include:

From left to right: a Zoom “Four Star” Tour of the World with Gen. Petraeus, a float down the Yellowstone River in Montana, and tickets for the Presidential Suite at an Atlanta United match!

Orianne’s Toast to Tortoises:
We aren’t going to let social distancing get in the way of holding our third annual Toast to Tortoises wine auction! Once again this year, dedicated Orianne board members have opened their cellars for your enjoyment and to support our conservation efforts. However, because state law prevents us from shipping wine out-of-state, this auction is only available to Georgia residents or those willing to meet in Georgia for wine delivery. The holiday season is upon us, be sure you’re ready for company and support conservation at the same time! A few highlights from the Toast to Tortoises auction include:

From left to right: a 1983 Chateau Margaux, Margaux, France, a 1982 Chateau Mouton Rothschild, Pauillac, and a 1979 Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars Cask 23.

More auction items are being added daily, so be sure to keep checking back – you don’t want to miss anything! And please share this email with anyone you think might be interested in these items or our mission. As always, thank you so much for your unwavering support of conservation.
