Taking Flight

A Benefit for the Laguna de Santa Rosa Foundation

Thursday, April 18, 2024, 5:00 – 8:00 pm

Wild Oak Saddle Club, Santa Rosa, CA


This event is sold out

For nearly 35 years, our community has helped grow our organization from small group of dedicated volunteers, to a growing team and committed group of volunteers who help us carry out our work. As the voice for Sonoma County's most spectacular wetlands, the Laguna de Santa Rosa Foundation works to improve water quality and the vitality of the Laguna, inspire connection to nature and our watershed, and support the restoration of rare and endangered species. This important work is possible because of the generosity of our community. As the needs of the Laguna have changed over time, we are equipped and ready to carry this important work into the future.

This year, we are partnering with the Wild Oak Saddle Club, a beautiful venue with views of the surrounding mountains which comprise the upper reaches of the Laguna de Santa Rosa watershed. This evening will be limited to 80 guests, all of whom we invite to give generously to support our mission through the purchase of sponsorships, tickets, and specially cultivated auction opportunities, as we connect and share appreciation of the Laguna de Santa Rosa.

LIVE AUCTION! Our spirited evening together promises to be a lot of fun, and this year’s live auctionis even more exciting than last year! You’ll have a chance to bid on get-aways to both Anchor Bay and Tomales Bay, a Family Fun Adventure package that includes an overnight stay at Safari West, an evening of Ravioli making for you and your friends, the chance to enjoy Sonoma County by Land, Air and Sea—think kayaking, an airplane ride and an idyllic stay at Sea Ranch, and so much more! CLICK HERE FOR THE FULL LIST OF AUCTION LOTS.

Have you made reservations and can no longer attend? We're sorry to miss you! All event proceeds (less the Fair Market Value) are tax-deductible, and support our mission. Please let us know if any portion of your reservation can be considered as a donation. Refunds can be processed in full up to 7 days prior to the event, less a $25 processing fee. Thank you for your support!

Relive the festivities from our 2023 event!
