Brittany Buenvenida with TopazWALNUT CREEK, CALIF./Jan. 24, 2017 —Lindsay Wildlife Experience is excited to announce that table and individual tickets are now available for the Seventh Annual Faces of Wildlife Gala, scheduled for 6 p.m. Saturday, April 1, 2017 at Diablo Country Club (1700 Clubhouse Road, Diablo).

This wild event raises money for Lindsay Wildlife, which treats more than 5,500 injured and orphaned animals each year and welcomes 100,000 visitors to the Walnut Creek-based exhibit hall annually.

The Faces of Wildlife Gala will be an unforgettable experience with live animals, a gala signature cocktail, talented local artists sketching animals and live auctions featuring unique Lindsay experiences and vacation getaways! Guests will enjoy a scrumptious gourmet dinner followed by a dance party with popular band The Klipptones!

Individual tickets are $250; tables of 10 are $2,500 and are available online.

This year’s Faces of Wildlife Gala focuses on Topaz, a golden eagle who came to Lindsay in 2005. Named after Lake Topaz near the area where she was found, this beautiful 11-pound bird is unable to fully extend her wing, which prevents sustained flight so she serves as an animal ambassador at Lindsay, teaching the world about her species. Locally, the nearby Diablo Range is home to one of the highest concentrations of wintering Golden Eagles ever recorded.

Michael and Mercedes Stead are the Presenting Sponsors of the Faces of Wildlife Gala. Additional Gala sponsors include PG&E, and Jelly Belly.

Media sponsors include Diablo Magazine and KKDV/KKIQ.

For more information and to purchase tickets: Tickets start at $250. Please call 925-627-2950 or visit
