Help Break Records at the Prairie Warrior Auction on March 21st

Minot Area Chamber EDC (MACEDC) is set to hold the 37th Annual Prairie Warrior Auction on March 21, 2024, at the North Dakota State Fair Center Magic Place. Proceeds from the Prairie Warrior Auction will go to the Prairie Warrior Association and Home for the Holidays to support local military personnel.  

The Prairie Warrior Association helps squadrons at Minot Air Force Base pay for events, meals, and other morale-boosting activities aimed at improving day-to-day life for all who serve. Home for the Holidays is a program administered by MACEDC to send first-term airmen home throughout the November and December holiday season. In 2023, MACEDC added table sponsorships for businesses, organizations, and individuals to directly support the Home for the Holidays initiative. 

The auction is open to the public and costs $25 per person, must be over 21 to attend. Active-duty military and spouses are welcome to attend the event at no cost.  

“Verendrye Electric Cooperative has been attached to the military since 1955,” said Tom Rafferty, MACEDC Military Affairs Committee chair and Verendrye Electric Member Services and Communication Manager. “We are grateful to all who serve and want to do our part to help. We are proud to support the annual auction that supports Minot Air Force Base.”  

Verendrye Electric Cooperative is the presenting sponsor of the event for the second year in a row. 

Doors open at 5:30 p.m., taco buffet begins at 6:00 p.m. and the live and silent auctions follow with a wide selection of items that won’t disappoint. Donations include unique military items and contributions from the community you can’t find anywhere else, such as an authentic U.S. Air Force Humvee seat, suite tickets to a University of North Dakota hockey game, a custom leather bomber jacket adorned with Minot Air Force Base unit patches, a myriad of creative private events, and more.  

“We are rolling off a record-breaking auction in 2023 where we raised over $87,000 to support Team Minot,” shared Keli Rosselli-Sullivan, MACEDC Military Liaison. “Our community cares deeply and wants to do all we can to help support all who serve. Military support is one of our key pillars and the Prairie Warrior Auction is one of our most exciting events. The more we can do to make those who serve feel appreciated, the better we all are as a community.”
