The 16th annual Magic Under the Mangroves™, under the leadership of Chair, Carol Dinardo and Vice-Chair, Katrina Lundmark-Kash, is a recognition of the continuing importance of protecting our unique Southwest Florida natural environment and quality of life. The 2020 gala event will be held in a spectacular tented setting on the grounds of the Conservancy Nature Center that celebrates nature at night.

The evening begins with cocktails, hors d’oeuvres, silent auction and fund a need. A delightful and sustainable seated dinner follows provided by renowned Washington D.C. caterer, Windows Catering. The Live Fund-A-Need offers further opportunity to learn about and support the mission of the Conservancy and the live auction, featuring unique, one-of-a-kind items and experiences will close the enchanted evening.

This elegant, eco-chic gala, utilizes renewable resources and sustainable practices:

  • Limiting the use of paper promotional materials. Where paper is used, we are sensitive to employ “green” practices
  • Committing to recycling and waste reduction
  • Sustainable cuisine

The Magic Under the Mangroves™ gala fundraiser is a key source of revenue for the Conservancy of Southwest Florida.
