The Southwest Environmental Center invites the public to its annual gala fundraiser, A Wild Night for Wildlife, on Saturday, October 14th, 6-10 pm. The group is celebrating 25 years of protecting wildlife and wild places in the southwest. Proceeds go to support our work to protect Mexican wolves, jaguars, the Rio Grande, Otero Mesa, and all native wildlife and habitats. So come out, have fun and help us protect wild nature!


The event will take place in Downtown Las Cruces at the new plaza under the stars, and will feature fine wine, Santa Fe Brewing Company beers, and great food prepared by local restaurants including Chala’s Wood Fired Grill, Dragonfly, The Pecan Grill, Salud de Mesilla, Andeles, Pastaggios Italian, Mountain View Market Co-op, Le Rendez-vous Café, Let Them Eat Cake and hors d’oeuvre’s from Alma de Arte. Attendees can eat, drink and dance while enjoying the wit and music of M.C. Bob Diven and music by Rhythm Mystic and others.


Guests will also have the chance to pick up some incredible bargains among the many items in a silent auction, including an aerial tour of the Organ Mountains-Desert Peaks National Monument, stays at a 5- star Mexican beach resort, dining out packages, artwork, jewelry, luxury getaways, and much more.
