Hood Cultural Center and Museum would like to celebrate another year of preserving Mount Hood history. The center will host an evening of auctions, socializing and refreshments from 6-10 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 6.

The event, an annual fundraiser called Heritage Night, will take place at the museum, 88900 E. Highway 26, Business Loop, Government Camp.

"We're very excited to welcome our guests back to the mountain, for this social event of the year. Barring any COVID restrictions, we're planning on a fun-filled night," said Museum Curator Lloyd Musser.

Heritage Night will include ample opportunities for supporters to bid on items and help raise funds for the museum, including an online auction option for those unable to attend in person. The online auction can be found on the museum website at Virtual bidding will begin at noon Monday, Nov. 1, and stay open until 9 p.m. Monday, Nov. 8.

Participants can bid as often as they like until the auction closes, but only online bids will be accepted for the virtually offered items.

Auction packages to be offered at the in-person event will be viewable online, but bidding is only allowed in person at Heritage Night.

The in-person auction will include a range of donated items, including weekend escapes, mountain-themed decor, creations made by local artists, gift certificates of all types, outdoor activities, and themed gift baskets.

Food and drinks will be offered free of charge.

Those who have specialty items, access to one-of-a-kind experiences, or a rare behind-the-scenes opportunity they'd like to contribute to the auction, are encouraged to contact the museum. The deadline to donate is Oct. 27.

"'Welcome back' is likely to be the best thing we've heard in a while," said Sandi Shaub, Museum Board Member and Event Chairperson. "We're so happy to safely resume celebrating our mountain friendships, while supporting this community treasure. For the minimal cost of an annual museum membership, (available at the door), we can bid on great options and help keep the museum operational. It's a win-win."

Oregon state COVID-related guidelines will be followed for gatherings at the museum.
