A Celebration of Wetlands and Cranes

  • Glen View Club 100 Golf Road Golf, Illinois (map)

A Benefit Evening in Support of the Wetlands Initiative Featuring George Archibald of the International Crane Foundation

Cranes are among the most endangered birds on Earth, and wetlands are their home. But wetlands continue to disappear.

Come celebrate these charismatic birds this fall—and support the Wetlands Initiative’s habitat restoration projects!

Dr. George Archibald, co-founder of the world-renowned International Crane Foundation, will be the Wetlands Initiative's keynote speaker for the evening, following cocktails and dinner at the beautiful Glen View Club just north of Chicago.

Tickets are $275 per person in support of TWI's mission of ecological restoration ($200 of each ticket is tax-deductible).

When making your reservation, consider upgrading your wine for the evening. Gundlach Bundschu Winery in California's Sonoma County has generously donated premium Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon wines as an optional upgrade and, if you should choose to upgrade, your additional donation will help bring back even more wetlands for cranes and other species that need them. Doing good with great wine!

Reserve your tickets online here or by calling TWI at 312-922-0777, ext. 110
