Our annual Earth Day Benefit is a critical source of funding for our important work to save nearby nature, protect our region’s vital waterways, and connect children of all ages to the wonders of the natural world. We are so excited to gather at Bobak’s Signature Events again this April, and hope you’ll join us in celebrating 50 years of conservation!
Thursday, April 21st, 2022
5:00 – 9:00pm
Bobak’s Signature Events, Woodridge
If you have attended our Earth Day Benefit before, there will be a few changes to the format this year. Rather than a sit-down dinner, it will be a cocktail-style gathering featuring Bobaks’ exquisite culinary cuisine and festive libations. This will allow us to spread out a bit for everyone’s comfort and safety as well as make socializing and networking a little easier. As always, we are taking safety at our event very seriously. We will be implementing safety procedures as recommended by state and local health agencies.
New this year is our featured entertainment! Chris Heroldt and T. Duncan Parker, local professional dueling pianos, will be our emcees and performers for the evening. These talented entertainers will bring a lot of laughs and energy to our evening!
The Silent Auction is now open! Once again, our members, volunteers, trustees, staff, and friends have been incredibly generous and we have a host of plants, garden art, nature-inspired books, jewelry, home décor, outdoor recreation equipment, restaurant certificates, and more for your bidding pleasure!
Check back often, as we’ll be opening the Silent Auction in waves, and adding new items continuously over the next week. Bid early, and bid often! Remote bidding is available, and, if you’re the lucky winner, you’ll need to pick up your winnings from McDonald Farm or pay for shipping. Bidding closes during our Earth Day Benefit on Thursday, April 21st around 8:30pm.
Registration for the Earth Day Benefit is now closed! We hope to see you there and please call (630) 428-4500 with any questions.
