Bring your dad and help us strike it rich. Create a personal Father’s Day card; enter into an arm-wrestling, tug-of-war, or watermelon-eating contest. Dress up in Gold Rush era costume for an old time photo. Place bids in the dessert auction; all to help raise funds for the SOS, Save Old Shasta campaign.
