The Children’s Nature Retreat is hosting its 9th annual gala, themed “An Evening On Safari.” Guests will enjoy a specialty cocktail reception followed by a three-course gourmet dinner.
Live entertainment will be provided by the talented international group, Sharon Katz and The Peace Train. Throughout the evening, attendees will be able to participate in live and silent auctions, containing prizes including a week-long stay in Ireland, as well as an overnight stay at the Retreat (including Continental breakfast, BBQ at the pool, daytime activities with the animal keepers and horticulture specialist, and more), airline tickets, and more. Guests have the option to attend in safari-themed attire and participate in a costume contest.
The Children’s Nature Retreat is located on 20 acres of land and is home to more than 170 domesticated livestock and exotic animals. All donations will support the retreat’s hands-on and interactive programs that educate families and children. The annual fundraiser allows the retreat to expand its resources and accommodate more animals in need of a home.
