Summer Celebration, benefiting The Wetlands Institute

July 29, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Presented by Diller Fisher and the Diller Family and Foundation, The Wetlands Institute’s largest and most prestigious event of the year brings together nearly 300 guests including esteemed donors and community partners, and attracts new donors in direct support of our mission-based programs.

The Icona Golden Inn has partnered with us this year to provide our guests with a fabulous array of hors d’oeuvres and cocktails. We hope you will join us and enjoy live music, basket raffles, a silent auction, and a live auction – in a cocktail party atmosphere.
Our professional Auctioneer generates excitement during the live auction and has guests bidding often and high on amazing experiences, delectable dinners, exclusive wine collections and much more.

Proceeds from this premier event benefit The Wetlands Institute’s world class research, conservation and education initiatives. Please join us for this year’s celebration. Sponsors are essential to the success of the Summer Celebration.
