FAYETTEVILLE, GA, September 7, 2021 — There is no place like Georgia, that’s why the Southern Conservation Trust (SCT) focuses its annual benefit on conservation in our great state. The Southern Conservation Trust invites Georgia and their Southeastern community members to sign up for their virtual annual benefit and auction, a Celebration of Conservation. The Virtual Auction opens Saturday, September 18, 2021 at Noon and closes on Saturday 25, 2021 at 7:00 PM. Participants can register online and buy raffle tickets at www.sctlandtrust.org/annualbenefit and the raffle will be drawn on Saturday, September 25, 2021 at 7:30 PM.


The Celebration of Conservation Auction, presented by the Southern Conservation Trust, will highlight conservation efforts in the state of Georgia and throughout the Southeast and will feature a premiere virtual silent auction and raffle with a focus on wildlife, outdoor recreation, sustainability, and southern businesses. All proceeds will go towards expanding environmental education, access to nature in Georgia and the Southeast, land and wildlife conservation, as well as their newest project the Fayette Environmental Education Center.


Registration for the virtual event is free, raffle tickets are $10 each, and raffle prizes include a Yeti Cooler, a Whiskey Package, a 2 night stay at Courtyard by Marriott Sandestin, a $100 Arborwear Gift Card, and a SCT and YellowBand Coffee Package featuring the new Bee In Nature Coffee Blend with SCT mugs.


“I’m proud to invite all those who love nature to join us in a virtual event focused on conservation in Georgia. Now, more than ever, we see the need for access to the outdoors. The time to protect the land that we love is now.” said Pace Quattlebaum.  “This renewed focus on conservation and environmental education will be visible to the community as we open the new Fayette Environmental Education Center to the public in Downtown Fayetteville, Georgia. We couldn’t be more excited for this venture and welcome community support by joining us at the Virtual Celebration of Conservation Auction on September 25, 2021.”
