“We’re very excited that these world renown musicians and artists are supporting us in this fund-raising effort,” said Karli Epstein, development director. “It’s also important for bidders to know that 100% of all funds raised will be donated to the Northern Nevada Chapter of the American Red Cross to help us continue to serve our community and others in need when disasters strike.”
The Northern Nevada American Red Cross chapter area covers 87,000 square miles with a population of more than 670,000 people. Our chapter territory is from Tonopah north, with our main chapter in Reno and branch offices in Elko, Incline Village and Winnemucca.

The American Red Cross shelters, feeds and provides emotional support to victims of disasters; supplies nearly half of the nation’s blood; teaches lifesaving skills; provides international humanitarian aid; and supports military members and their families. The Red Cross is a charitable organization – not a government agency – and depends on volunteers and the generosity of the American public to perform its mission.
