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 Avalon has partners with us 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. If you believe in our mission and support the coastal community – please join us for an amazing night and consider becoming an event sponsor.
