The Conservancy of Southwest Florida will celebrate the 15th annual Magic Under the Mangroves gala on Thursday, March 7 at the Conservancy Nature Center, 1495 Smith Preserve Way in Naples.
Magic Under the Mangroves is one of the top charitable events in Naples. The eco-chic fundraising event begins at 5:30 p.m. and includes cocktails, hors d’oeuvres and a seated dinner by award-winning, certified green caterer Windows Catering of Washington D.C. A silent auction featuring one-of-a-kind experiences and live Fund-A-Need will generate funds to support the Conservancy’s mission of protecting Southwest Florida’s water, land, wildlife and future.
Patron packages start at $3,500 and individual tickets are $750 per person.
Presented by Northern Trust with William Raveis Real Estate as a supporting sponsor, Magic Under the Mangroves is a major fundraiser for the Conservancy. Over the past 14 years, the event has raised more than $10 million to fund scientific research, education programs, policy development, advocacy and wildlife rehabilitation.
“Magic Under the Mangroves is all about connecting people with the reasons they love Southwest Florida,” said Rob Moher, president and CEO of the Conservancy. “We look forward to coming together in recognition of our region’s natural environment while raising critical funds that will help protect its beauty and quality of life for future generations.”
Longtime supporter and Conservancy member Robin Hamilton is chair of this year’s event.
