A gala fundraiser to support the Southwest Environmental Center's work to protect wildlife and wild places. This is one of our big fundraisers of the year. The money raised is vital for our efforts to protect natural treasures like Otero Mesa, Mexican wolves, and the Rio Grande. Join us as we close off Main Street in downtown Las Cruces for an evening under the stars, featuring delicious food from Savoys, Andeles, and other great local restaurants, High Desert brews, fine wine, and a silent auction featuring more than 70 unique items. Dance to the music of the Muddy Hands Blues Band and Soulshine. Enjoy the ethereal sounds of Native American flute player Randy Granger. Meet the staff and board of the Southwest Environmental Center. Mingle with other people who care about the natural environment. In short, enjoy a really fun evening while supporting a great cause!
