Western New York is home to incredible wildlife. Your ticket purchase will go towards protecting the forests, farms, meadows, and streams that we all call home.
First, join us for an in-person happy hour at 42 North Brewing in East Aurora on
September 20, 2021
Then, join us online for the Gala presentation, auction, and awards on
September 22, 2021
At the happy hour at 42 North we will celebrate all that nature has given us in the past year, together in-person again. There will be light appetizers and live music, and the first couple of drinks are on us!
If you can’t make the in-person happy hour, that’s okay. You can still tune in to the online Gala presentation where you will hear from guest speakers and bid on exciting auction items. Your ticket includes the happy hour and a gift basket containing a bottle of wine from Arrowhead Spring Vineyard and locally sourced hors d'oeuvres.
$125 per person or $185 for patrons.
Friend Groups of 10 tickets are $1,125 (a discount of one ticket)
Patrons and Friend Groups will be listed in the event program that you will receive with your gift basket.
