Date: Saturday, July 18, 2020

Agenda: The Gala will begin at 5:00 p.m. at the Bond Learning Center, 2401 S. Kansas Expressway, and wrap up around 8:00 pm. Delicious local food, beer and wine will be available throughout the evening. The silent auction and raffle end at 7:30 p.m.

Tickets: Tickets are available now! They are $50 in advance.  Tickets will be $55 at the door, and we may sell out this year, so ordering in advance is encouraged.

Things To Do at the Event:

If you play the Whiskey Pull you are guaranteed a good bottle of whiskey, and proceeds from the $30 chance go directly to Watershed Center education programs. Some lucky folks will walk away with a very special bottle worth two or three times the price of the chance! This game is made possible by the board and staff of the Watershed Committee of the Ozarks.

The Wine Grab is another way you can make a donation to Watershed Center Education Programs and all players will walk out with a great bottle of wine. Like the Whiskey Pull, some folks will draw a bottle valued well over the $20 chance.

Some call it Bag Toss, others call it Corn Hole…we think it’s a great way for you donate to Watershed Center education programs and have a chance to an awesome item. For $5 you get a ticket for the raffle, AND 4 throws. Each additional bag-in-the-hole gets you another ticket and chance to win!

Check out the best Silent Auction in town. We are humbled by the support of local artists, craftsman, makers, and local businesses who make it possible.


The food will be set up in stations around the room. Get ready to be blown away by this amazing menu presented by Chartwell’s and Chef Q.


We will have great a selection of beverages on the house!

  • Mother’s Brewery will be serving two fabulous beers and for $10, you can purchase a “bottomless” WCO tumbler to keep those drinks cool.
  • White and Red Wine will be available by the glass.
  • Award winning, high quality drinking water–so good its worth protecting!
  • Refreshing Iced Tea

All proceeds benefit the Watershed Committee of the Ozarks and will help us with our growing education and outreach programs and the Watershed Fellowship program.
