Tanka Bar donated a Ta-Tanka Gourmet Gift Basket to an auction on June 28, 2013, benefiting the Pine Ridge Area Chamber of Commerce in Kyle, SD. The event took place in the Lakota Prairie Ranch Resort parking lot.

The Chamber was raising funds to help keep the office open. As stated on their website, the Chamber is, "A voluntary non-profit corporation whose purpose is to create, sustain and enhance Indian owned businesses, therefore improving the quality of life on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation."

Our gift basket was among several high-ticket items and went for $55 after a little bit of a bidding war. Other items available were local art, household goods, a trailer home, a shed, bicycles, office equipment, beadwork and more. The Lakota Prairie Ranch Resort food truck was also there to offer purchasable meals which included local buffalo burgers and chili with partial proceeds going to the Chamber.
