March 27 – April 3, 2020
UPDATE: A message from Executive Director, Michael Myers on Thursday, April 2nd
Welcome to Virtual Wine (& Art) for Wildlife! Thank you for joining us! Unfortunately, we’re not able to gather in-person at Sunset Hills Winery. Instead, we’re going to take you on a virtual event over the course of the next week.
Below, you will find a variety of videos that will take you on our Virtual Wine (& Art) for Wildlife journey. We will be updating this webpage throughout the week with more information about our sponsors, vendors, and artists. If you have not done so, please register for the event here, and you will receive email updates when new videos have been posted.
We were planning to host a live auction of one-of-a-kind locally painted birdhouses and other items, so our live auction has become an online auction. The online auction will close at 8:00 pm on Friday, April 3rd. You can bid on The Birdhouses of Loudoun County and other items at our online auction site: https://charityauction.bid/LoudounWildlife (*Note: You will have to sign in with a free log-in on the auction site to be able to bid.)
How will this work?
Each year, Wine for Wildlife is our premier spring fundraising event, providing us with the resources necessary to inspire, motivate, and engage people to protect, preserve, and restore wildlife habitat in Loudoun County.
With this global health crises looming over us, it is more important than ever to take care of our physical and mental health. Loudoun County still has some amazing places to get outside to reduce stress and relieve anxiety. But, we need to ensure more great outdoor places are protected not only for your enjoyment, but for the benefit of wildlife. That’s why we are hosting this Virtual Wine (& Art) for Wildlife.
To ensure Loudoun Wildlife Conservancy is able to continue our work to protect wildlife habitats, serve as a knowledge leader for wildlife stewardship, inspire and engage people to become involved in the natural world, and advocate for the advancement of wildlife and habitat conservation, please make a donation to Loudoun Wildlife Conservancy as you would have at Wine (& Art) for Wildlife. Your generosity will move our work forward. We can’t do this without you!
