Gala 2017: Baine’s Bash

Join Heartland Farm Sanctuary at our 7th Annual Gala on Saturday, April 22! This year we are celebrating Baine as our Gala guest of honor and making this year’s Gala his party! 

Each year, Heartland hosts its Gala as its largest fundraiser of the year. In 2016 more than 250 Gala guests raised more than $90,000 for our programs helping vulnerable people and animals, and our most urgent capital needs. This year our goal is to raise $100,000 for our animals and people! Does your business or organization want to sponsor our Gala?

The evening is not your average fundraiser. This year’s Gala will include a VIP pre-party with cocktails, hors d’oeuvres and visits from our rescued animals, including Baine the goat himself! Browse our fantastic silent auction, sit down to a delectable plant-based dinner and enjoy the show! We’re also very excited to announce that Ginger Martin from Madison’s Magic 98 will be our guest emcee!

PLUS: This year’s silent auction is going online! What does this mean? More convenient bidding (so you can make sure to score the auction item you really want!) plus less waiting at check-out. Make sure to bring your tablet or smartphone so you can get in on the auction action! Don’t have one? Don’t worry – we’ll have bidding assistants available to help!

All funds raised during the evening will go toward both our animal assisted programs for vulnerable youth and adults, and also for our Buy the Farm Campaign – a capital campaign to enable Heartland to purchase the farm property and significantly improve our program facilities to expand our impact in animal rescue, animal-assisted therapy, and humane education efforts. A HUGE thank you to our generous silent auction donors!

VIP Tickets are $100 and include special VIP pre-party with your farm animal friends.

General Tickets are $75.

Our VIP pre-party starts at 5 PM, and the general reception starts at 6. Seating is limited. Early reservations are recommended. Remember to dress to impress!


Thank you to our co-presenting sponsors, National Guardian Life and the Levy Giving Fund!
