2021 Gala: Please Join Us!

You're invited to the  2021 Wildlife Center of Virginia Gala – An Online Celebration!

Please join us for Gala Week – the week of October 18 

In the days leading up to the Gala, we’ll be presenting a series of online events to our all-access ticket holders, including sessions with some of our “wildlife ambassadors” … special presentations by Center staff …  and surprises!

And join us for the Gala – Saturday evening, October 23!

Join us for a variety of pre-gala receptions and small meet-and-mingle sessions hosted by Wildlife Center staff and our “wildlife ambassadors”.

And then Wildlife Center President Ed Clark is live – with an online update on the Center’s work, the premiere of the Center’s Gala video, and the exciting close of the online auction!

And join us for the auction!

This year’s auction will include a dazzling array of items from around the world – many with a wildlife theme!  Works by talented artisans and crafters, gifts for kids and kids-at-heart, estate jewelry, one-of-a-kind treasures and experiences … and more! Bidding on all of those items will be online in October and will close on the evening of Saturday, October 23.  

We’ll have online showcases of our auction items. Join us on Facebook Live throughout Gala Week as we highlight a variety of auction items.  These live showcases will be open to everyone.

Though we hope to see you online during Gala Week, you do not need to purchase a ticket to the Gala to bid in the online auction!
