The Outdoor Industry Women’s Coalition (OIWC) is proud to announce that the much anticipated Ramp It Up Auction is now liveâ€¦so let the bidding begin! Visit the online auction at http://www.readysetauction.com/auctions/oiwc/home to try to win this summer’s most exciting outdoor gear and apparel.
We have footwear, packs, bags, outerwear, base layers, apparel, hats, paddling gear, hiking gear, luggage, snowshoes, cycling clothes, and roof boxes, with some items valued up to $500. The auction even includes gift certificates from REI, Merrell, and Sierra Designs. We’re also auctioning off some of the actual items worn during the Ramp It Up fashion show held last month at the Outdoor Retailer Trade Show in Salt Lake City, Utah.
These props and clothes will go fast. There are more than 160 items on-line now, and OIWC will add more every week through November 30, 2006 when the auction closes. Bookmark http://www.readysetauction.com/auctions/oiwc/home and check back often.
100% of the proceeds go back to the OIWC, a non-profit organization dedicated to supporting professional development for women of all ages who make their livelihood within the outdoor industry. Thanks to Fox River for underwriting Ramp It Up and the online auction.
