But despite the crowd downtown, Dakota Boys and Girls Ranch drew a crowd of its own–nearly 300 people, who bid on quilts and silent auction items, which raised more than $12,000 for children at-risk, who are in the Ranch’s treatment programs in Fargo, Bismarck and Minot.
Now we’re winding up for auction #2 in our statewide event. The Bismarck auction will be this Saturday, Oct. 11, on the Bismarck campus at 1227 35 ST N. The schedule has a quilt preview at 10 a.m., lunch served from 11 a.m. – 1 p.m..

The live quilt auction starts at noon, with 83 quilts from across the nation up for bid. You can see some of them by visiting www.dakotaranch.org/events.
And just so friends on the western side of North Dakota don’t miss out, we have our annual Pigs ‘n a Blanket on our Minot campus, 6301 19 Ave NW, on Tuesday, Oct. 21. Check the Pigs ‘n a Blanket link at www.dakotaranch.org/events to learn more.
