Local auctioneers make PERM events successful!

Each year PERM puts on about a dozen fundraisers ranging from banquet-style dinners to large consignment auctions. What they all have in common—what makes them financially successful and entertaining for our supporters, are the talents donated by a handful of local auctioneers. We are truly grateful for their talents and their commitment to PERM. The following is a list of the auctioneers who donate their time and talents to PERM. Without hesitation, we recommend any of them if you are in need of auction services. Whether you hire them for your own auction, see them working somewhere, or just pass them on the street, please let them know you appreciate what they are doing for the outdoor community!

PERM volunteers staff our booths at the Sport Shows!

Late Winter and early Spring mean sport show season in Minnesota. PERM had a booth at several area shows this season including, The Minnesota Walleye Expo, The St. Cloud Sportsman Show, The Minnesota Muskie Expo and The Northwest Sports Show. Countless hours are spent by dedicated PERM volunteers who staff the booths at these shows. It’s all part of our ongoing effort to educate the public about the need for balanced solutions to natural resource management issues.

Thank you to all the PERM volunteers who put this event together. Also a special thank you to all the area businesses who contributed to make this event successful. Thank you and congratulations to all the participants in the many raffles, games and special auctions. Your generous spending is greatly appreciated.
