Join executive director, Cheryl Tracy, featured artist Maria DeSimone Prascak (of Maria's IDEAS Custom Murals & Fine ART), and live auction emcee Sally Wiggin for an exciting evening at the National Aviary for the Opening Soirée & Benefit Auction!
We are thrilled to host 40 regional and national wildlife artists! Our juried art exhibition and marketplace opens with a first-class fundraiser soiree. Enjoy heavy hors d’oeuvres from Atria’s, the exclusive caterer of the National Aviary, open bar, signature drinks, musical entertainment, birds to meet up close, and silent auction items to complement the exquisite artwork that will fill the building. Be among the first to meet the artists for an opportunity to purchase magnificent works of art prior to the two-day public marketplace, which takes place on November 1-5.
Throughout the evening, unique Aviary experiences, works of art, and other one-of-a-kind items will be up for bidding during silent and live auctions.
