Bidding for the Birds

International Bird Rescue is excited to commemorate 40 years of work on behalf of aquatic birds in the Bay Area – and the celebration will not be the same without your attendance!


And get ready for cocktails, light hors d’oeuvres and a plethora of amazing silent auction items! Not to mention a special appearance by Judy Irving, the award-winning director of The Wild Parrots of Telegraph Hill!

She’s stopping by to the help celebrate, and to show a clip of her current project, Pelican Dreams – a documentary about California Brown Pelicans, featuring International Bird Rescue’s work at our San Francisco Bay Center!

Here’s another sneak peek at just some of the treasures and adventures that are only a bid away!

GoPro Camera

Oakland Zoo with private tour

Go home with GoPro’s Outdoor Edition of their famous HD HERO2! The world’s most versatile camera is waiting to capture your next big adventure! You can be a different kind of hero with International Bird Rescue’s “Parent of the Year” packages! The “East Bay Parent of the Year” kit even includes a private docent tour of the Oakland Zoo with a Giraffe Feeding for up to five guests!

Wine Tasting & Music Tickets

Kronehof 7×35 Binoculars

Double date in SF with a wine tasting and barrel sampling for four at The Winery Collective and four tickets to a performance during the 2012-13 Season at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music! This brand new pair of Scope City’s Kronehof 7×35 Ultra Wide Angle Binoculars will enhance the spectacular adventures you will find within our “Ultimate Birding Package.” HINT: One quest promises dolphins and pelagic birds, and hopes to spot Orcas and Leatherback turtles!

Beautiful Bird Art

Berkeley Ironworks

Sandy Farwell calls her original print “Mandarin Color,” and as you may guess from the loving detail of this Mandarin Duck’s bright feathers, Farwell is a true animal lover – and lifelong wildlife volunteer!

Weekends mean time to exercise, eat out, try new things and relax, and Berkeley Ironworks’ “Intro to Climbing” class for two, is just one aspect of our “Free Time in Berkeley” package, complete with all the crucial ingredients of activity, dining and fun-filled entertainment!

The party won’t be the same without you!
