The ever popular Cattails & Cocktails fundraiser hosted by the Associate Board of Lake Forest Open Lands is still HAPPENING this May, albeit in a revised format. Highlights for this year's Cattails & Cocktails @ Home include:

  • Drastically reduced tickets at $25/person for a fiesta dinner of three tacos + chips/salsa + a signature margarita (or other beverage) from The Other Door on a night of your choosing the weekend of May 28 - 31;  
  • Raffle tickets for a chance to win an instant wine cellar curated by the Associate Board (valued over $1,000);
  • Online silent auction (including an opportunity to purchase "Lighting the Bonfire" at Bagpipes & Bonfires, 9/20/2020), and;
  • New this year, a Scavenger Hunt within our preserves will be included with your meal at pick up. 

We hope you will support LFOLA and participate in this year's physically distanced but still socially connected Cattails & Cocktails @ Home.

All proceeds benefit Lake Forest Open Lands' mission.

Thank you for your support of the 2018 Cattails & Cocktails event! 

Over 300 guests enjoyed a festive evening on Friday, May 11. Proceeds from the evening support our mission devoted to the acquisition and stewardship of our natural landscapes, and to ensuring all generations have a meaningful, lasting connection to nature and our land.
