Community Events: Born to be Wild

More than 400 people attended the 7th annual Born to be Wild dinner and auction at the Great Wolf Lodge in Grand Mound. Highlighting the evening was a performance from Goldy McJohn and the Steppenwolf experience. Goldy was the original keyboard player with the 70’s hit band Steppenwolf. The band was on hand to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the song Born to be Wild. Forty-five live items were auctioned including an all inclusive VIP NASCAR trip to the 2010 US Open at Pebble Beach. The Harley motorcycle themed event raised $315,000 for the Boys & Girls Clubs of Thurston County.
