Silent Auction Items


MANY area merchants are donating amazing items for the silent auction. Check back for photos of some of the great contributions.

Strider Bike


The 12 Sport grows with your child: The seat and handlebar heights adjust to accommodate ages 18 months to 5 years, or a 12 in. – 20 in. inseam (no tools required). The 12 Sport is perfect for future upgrades like a foot brake or heavy-duty tires.

Designed for young kids: Weighing in at only 3.0 kg (6.7 lbs.), the 12 Sport makes it easy for your child to ride and stride. Mini-grips mean little mitts can easily take control and make this lean, mean, durable bike the biggest bang for your buck, which is probably why it’s our best seller.

The Napoleon TravelQ™ 285 Portable Propane Gas Grill


The Napoleon TravelQ™ 285 Portable Propane Gas Grill has set a new standard in portable grilling excellence. This grill boasts 285 square inches of total grilling area. That means you can grill up to 18 large hamburgers at once or a couple of small chickens or roasts thanks to the high-top cast aluminum lid. Two individually controlled burners provide precise temperature control.

The porcelain coated enamel grids will season to a nonstick surface just like a cast iron frying pan. Replace one set of grids with the griddle and caramelize onions or cook breakfast. This grill features a cast aluminum body to keep it light and portable and the legs fold in for compact storage. The removable grease tray slides out for easy cleaning. The TravelQ™ is a perfect way to take gourmet grilling on the go. Ten year warranty on main parts.


Our Love is Forever


Rapid City professional photographer Mike Wolforth has been a huge supporter of the BHRC. He captured this image of two bald eagles at Canyon Lake early in the winter of 2018-2019.

Framed as a 12×18” photo, these magnificent birds will show everyone who enters your home or office your feelings for raptors.

All profits from this BHRC Fundraiser will be used for building the new Black Hills Raptor Center. Our goal for 2019 is an additional $110,000, which will help us erect 3 bird enclosures and the human residence.

Once these structures are completed, we can move to the site. An additional 5 buildings will be constructed over the next 4 years. To keep up with the development of BHRC go to here.
