As a closing-

Chamber of Commerce—
organizer of DuneFest—held
a charity auction that raised
$34,000 for their community’s
local food bank, Boy Scouts and
other charitable organizations.
Generous DuneFest sponsors and
vendors donated products and services
that were sold to the highest bidder.
Can-Am even donated a 2017 Maverick
X3 Turbo R that was auctioned off!
If you’re on the fence about
attending DuneFest next year, consider

sweltering in summer heat, it’s usually
a comfy mid- 60 degrees at Winchester
Bay dunes on the Oregon coast—and

a local summer camp for kids fighting cancer, enabling more kids to attend the camp
and enjoy some outdoor fun. Right, there were a ton of fun events at this year’s
DuneFest, including treasure hunts for the kids, poker runs and group rides.
