If you have attended this event in the past, you already know how much FUN the Gala is for everyone involved! Come join us for our biggest annual fundraising event of the year, complete with premium local wines & beer, delicious local food pairings, entertainment, and, of course, gorgeous garden ART!
The Gala is vitally important to our mission: to restore and conserve the Laguna de Santa Rosa and to inspire public appreciation for this Wetland of International Importance.
The Vine Hill House at O'Connell Vineyards of Sebastopol is the perfect setting for our beautiful fundraiser. The estate overlooks the Santa Rosa plain, and is surrounded by grounds of lawns and flower gardens, vineyards, and spectacular views from every side.
Garden Art Silent Auction
Bid on superb wine lots and fabulous, one-of-a-kind wearable and garden art created by some of Sonoma County’s most notable artists.
A BIG thank you to our 2015 artists!

Live Auction: Bid on Adventure Packages!
Live auctioneer, Bill Carle, will lead the entertaining auction of "Adventure Packages." Details of these exciting items will be released in the coming months.
Delicious artisan food, gourmet cheeses, olives, tomatoes, desserts, and more is all included with your ticket purchase!
Craft Beer Selection
We offer a small selection of finely crafted beers for our hop loving guests. Once again, Brian Hunt, brew master and owner of Moonlight Brewing, will be donating a selection of his lagers. This year, we welcome Steve Doty and his sour and wild artesian ales from Shady Oak Barrel House to the lineup.
Paired with Premium Local Wine
The Gala would not be complete without the selection of fine wines offered by our local wineries. Our silent auction includes a number of wine lots including private tastings and tours, bottles in 1, 2 or 3 set lots, and magnums of fine wines. Some of these wines will also be available for all our guests to enjoy during the event. Don't forget to pick up a raffle ticket when you arrive for a chance to win a mixed case of wine, and enjoy a "Taste of Sonoma Valley" after the event!
Stay tuned to see our list of generous wine donors!
