Silent Auction and Live Auction
TSCRA Law Enforcement Silent Auction in the Expo
Opens Friday, March 23, and bidding closes Saturday, March 24, at 5:00 p.m.
The TSCRA Law Enforcement Silent Auction helps raise funds for the advanced training the special rangers need to remain current in law enforcement techniques. Funds also provide the special rangers with better equipment, such as communications and surveillance devices.
In 2017, special rangers were deployed to assist with wildfires, floods, blizzards and hurricanes. They need your support at the Silent Auction to help generate funds to be used to train and prepare for the next disaster.
The TSCRA special rangers are solely supported by TSCRA member dues and do not receive state or federal funding. Take advantage of this fundraiser auction and the opportunity to bid on some great items for your ranch family and support TSCRA law enforcement.
