Get ready to preen your plumage and shake your tail feathers at the 2017 gala!

This year we are highlighting a new “ology”—ornithology—with The Bird Ball. Proceeds support research and public programs—from expeditions to rediscover lost species to the exhibitions that tell those stories. Gather with the flock at 6 PM to enjoy a Tequila Mockingbird or a Dirty Birdy Martini. This will be followed by a three-course dinner catered by Continental Catering, the Flights of Fancy Live Auction, and dancing with the Tijuana Dogs. “Cockatiel” attire—feathers encouraged!

Tickets start at $350--call 619.255.0172 or email gala@sdnhm.org to secure your seat.

Gala Co-Chairs: Anne Bullard, Flaminia Mangone, Demi Rogozienski, Jessica Rohm
