‘Birds of a Feather’ gala benefits San Elijo Lagoon

San Elijo Lagoon Conservancy’s Birds of a Feather gala, themed “Growing Future Stewards,” was held Sept. 19 at Lomas Santa Fe Country Club in Solana Beach. The gala benefits conservation education at San Elijo Lagoon.

The gala raised funds that support watershed field trip experiences for schoolchildren, and public tours at San Elijo Lagoon. Peter Pupping performed acoustic and contemporary jazz during the silent auction and cocktail reception. As dinner ended, the live auction began, with special guest-to-be-auctioned Richard Lederer.
