Unwanted rock collection? Donation Opportunity

Did you end up an unwanted rock collection? Sometimes we inherit or are gifted items we have no idea what to do with. But it doesn’t feel right to throw it away and you don’t want to burden someone else with it.

Or, what if you were the “rock hound” and collected rocks, but now your interests lie elsewhere? You’ve already asked your family if they were interested and the question garnered blank stares….

Here’s an amazing opportunity: the Sac State Geology Club is still accepting rocks for their annual fundraising auction. And the best part: “Funds raised by the auction benefit all students in the Geology Program.”

Here’s the link to all the information:

Sacramento State’s Geology Club ( will have more than 150 samples of rocks, gemstones and fossils at its 10th annual Rock Auction, 6-9 p.m. Friday, Nov. 22, at the Alumni Center, 6000 J St.


The group is still taking donations, so if you wish to contribute to a fun evening and help expand our knowledge of the world, contact the Geology Department at (916) 278-6337.
