On a sunny spring afternoon, more than 250 ForestWatch supporters gathered under the oaks of the Thacher School’s Diamond Hitch Camp in Ojai to generate almost $60,000 to support our local forest conservation work. Attendees enjoyed wine, beer, and appetizers while bidding on more than one hundred silent auction items amidst live music from Blue Suede Sus. Afterwards, Chef Richard Maxwell and his crew prepared a fantastic gourmet barbecue dinner, and we awarded Pat Veesart our annual Wilderness Legacy Award for his staunch advocacy for the preservation of the Carrizo Plain National Monument. The supper was wrapped up with an exciting live auction orchestrated by our master of ceremonies, Geoff Green, followed by gourmet cupcakes.
Our biggest fundraiser of the year, Ojai Wild! was a huge success – thanks to all of our friends, supporters, volunteers, and sponsors. We are grateful to all of you who made the event possible and we look forward to seeing you again next spring!
HUGE THANK YOU TO ALL OF OUR SPONSORS!
