Get Ready to Tap into Your Wild Side! Embrace your appreciation of the outdoors and McHenry County’s wide open spaces with McHenry County Conservation Foundation’s 2nd annual “Tap into Your Wild Side” benefit. Beneath the ancient oaks of Glacial Park in the Lost Valley Visitor Center and patio tent, the evening affair includes savory appetizers, local craft beers of McHenry County, vintage wines and decadent desserts — with live music performed by MacKenzie O’Brien. Attendees can entice their “Wild Side” and bid on numerous auction items such as fishing gear, canoe trips, paddle boards, snow shoe and cross country ski rentals, and horse riding lessons. Obernauf Auctions will lend their expertise to kickoff the live auction rounds which include great packages like Bears Vs. Packers tickets, a Door County weekend stay, wine tasting party, zip lining canopy experience and more. Get a sneak peek at all the great auction items at:
