Green Ribbon Gala at Tunnel Farm

Saturday, October 1, 2016


Welcome to historic Tunnel Farm, the inspirational setting for Wissahickon Valley Watershed Association’s seventh annual Green Ribbon Gala on Saturday, October 1, 2016.

Guests will gather for an evening of cocktails, hors d’oeuvres and live music as we celebrate our rich history of protecting land, water, and life in the Wissahickon Watershed.

Please consider supporting our efforts at the Conservationist level or higher—and you will be invited to attend a VIP Moore Brothers wine tasting in the beautifully renovated farmhouse of our hosts, Andee and Brad Heffler, at 4:00 pm. The festivities move outside at 5:00 pm, where all guests will enjoy the extraordinary surroundings of this 25-acre farm, dedicated to the practice of Parelli Natural Horsemanship.

To become part of this unique evening, you may support the Gala at the patron level online or contact our office at 215-646-8866. Kindly reply by July 22, 2016 to be listed in the event invitation.
