Moonlight on the Marsh brings together long-standing supporters and new friends to celebrate the Friends of Ballona Wetlands and raise critical funds to support the organization.

It is a fun and meaningful evening dedicated to understanding our mission; learning about our education, restoration, science and advocacy programs; and sharing the company of our Board of Directors and fellow donors who care about the important work we do.  

The evening begins with a cocktail reception and silent auction featuring rare wines; sports, theater, museum and music tickets; fine dining; travel; wildlife art; and more.  See live raptors and owls from our friends at South Bay Wildlife Rahab.

Fritz Coleman of NBC4 will host again this year and a fabulous dinner will be served by Chef Michelle Lainez.
