2017 Earth Day Benefit Dinner

The 2017 Earth Day Benefit Dinner will be held Thursday, April 27th, 2017, 5:00pm to 9:00pm at Bobak's Signature Events in Woodridge.  Our largest fundraiser of the year, the Earth Day Benefit Dinner is a wonderful evening filled with laughter and camaraderie, all in support of conservation. It features an exquisite dinner, raffle, an inspiring video, a not-to-be-missed nature-themed silent auction and an opportunity to support our work to save nature in your neighborhood and all of the places we call home.  This year we will be celebrating our 45th anniversary.

As of April 20th, Early Bird registration has ended and Individual tickets to the Earth Day Benefit Dinner are $115 each.

Silent Auction
Members and friends of the Foundation and businesses throughout Northeastern Illinois donate artwork, books, jewelry, native plant material, trips, and adventure, sports and dining certificates each year that have earned our silent auction its acclaimed reputation.  If you would like to donate an item to the silent auction, please fill out the Silent Auction Donation form  or email Jill Johnson.

All sponsorships and auction donations are tax deductible.

We will again be using BidPal, the electronic auction system that lets our Benefit Dinner guests browse the entire silent auction from their smartphones, saving forests of paper, giving our event that "cool factor", and giving us another snazzy way to acknowledge our generous donors. 



We hope you will join us for this special and important evening!
