On behalf of Southern Illinois University Carbondale, you are invited to participate as a key partner in our annual fundraiser and auction for Touch of Nature, the Buffalo Tro! We need your help in order to make Touch of Nature the best it can be for SIU Carbondale and the local community. This year is our fourth annual signature fundraising event. Guests include university officials, community members, former staff and others who have a strong commitment to helping Touch of Nature succeed.
Funds raised in the past two years allowed us to purchase kayaks, replenish outdoor recreation equipment, air conditioners for cabins used for our signature Camp Little Giant summer camp and three new challenge elements: the elevator, a zip line, and a pamper pole.
We appreciate that you receive many requests to participate in events. However, we believe the location, attendee base and great atmosphere make this event a unique opportunity. We want to continue to raise funds to go toward enhancing the facilities and making improvements at Touch of Nature.
