Patti Ho Memorial Estate Auction to benefit wildlife

4/3/08

Proceeds will support programs of the Arizona Wildlife Federation and the Arizona Game and Fish Department

PHOENIX - The Arizona Wildlife Federation (AWF), in cooperation with the Arizona Game and Fish Department, will host an estate auction to sell items that were willed to the organizations upon the death of Patti Ho, a life-long supporter of wildlife in Arizona.

The event is set for Saturday, April 26, from 2 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the Ben Avery Shooting Facility Activity Center, 4044 W. Black Canyon Blvd. in Phoenix. The auction preview and Dutch-oven meal provided by Cowgirls Forever will run from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. The estate and tag auction will run from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m.

The auction items include: guns, trophy mounts and hides, a full-size truck and horse trailer, Western memorabilia, and much more.

Two very unique items for auction include one javelina and one bear special season big-game tag.

A limited number of tickets are available for this very special auction at $10 per adult, $6 per child under age 12. Your ticket includes dinner, a bidding number, and live entertainment from cowboy poets and western singers.

A portion of the proceeds will go to both the AWF and the department. The department portion will help support habitat and general programs.

To get to the Ben Avery Shooting Facility, take I-17 to the Carefree Highway exit (Exit 223) and go west 1/4 mile on Carefree Highway to the Ben Avery entrance. Follow the road into the range grounds until you reach the Activity Center.
