MRBO’s Tenth Anniversary Celebration and News!

MRBO is ten years old this year! The organization was incorporated in the State of Missouri in May 2010 and received its 501(c)3 nonprofit designation from the IRS in August. We had big plans for a 10th Anniversary party for all of our supporters and friends in Arrow Rock. Like other organizations, we’ve had to shift to a virtual party, so we’ve got a great livestream planned for you! On Sunday, September 13th at 6 p.m. CDT, Dana and Ethan will broadcast live from MRBO’s new visitor center! You will get a tour of the “BirdHouse” on Arrow Rock’s Main Street. Dana and Ethan will also give a brief history of MRBO and conclude by announcing the results of our online auction. Attendees can register directly on Zoom or tune in via Facebook Live.

Online Auction

We have a number of really cool experiences and items to offer for our 10th Anniversary fundraiser!  The auction will be held on the 32Auctions.com platform from September 3rd to 13th. Below are just some of the offerings:

  • a Spring 2021 overnight stay, birding with MRBO, and picnic lunch at the historic Prairie Park estate in Arrow Rock.
  • an any-time virtual wine-tasting for up to three households, hosted by MRBO’s Dana and Ethan.
  • a painting class with Arrow Rock’s Little Studio and Gallery owner Karen Miller.
  • cocktails, a BBQ and a backyard banding demonstration for eight at a rural Saline County log cabin.
  • Kids’ Corner – fun, educational items and experiences for children!
