One of Seattle’s premier fundraising events, our Hope for a Wild Future auction historically brings together 300 of our region’s top conservationists, philanthropists, and local business and community leaders, raising more than $400,000 to benefit the Northwest’s cherished wildlife and wildlands. This year, our virtual format removes the barrier for those who’d like to attend our event from anywhere in the world.

What is the pre-event Zoom gathering?
To recreate the social experience of sitting with your table captain and guests, Table Captains and their guests, as well as Full Event Access ticketholders, will be invited to an exclusive pre-event gathering via Zoom breakout rooms from 5:30 p.m.-6:00 p.m. PT on April 22nd. You can use the time to catch up, tell new guests about the event, or chat about your favorite Northwest adventures! This is a unique opportunity for guests to have a more intimate conversation prior to the main event.
What are Experience Boxes?
Experience Boxes are a great way to create a sense of togetherness and make you feel like you are sitting with Conservation Northwest at the banquet table. With your Experience Box order, you could receive a special fresh meal, bottle of wine, and even some CNW gear right to your doorstep the day of the live event. Table Captains can also opt to personalize their guests’ boxes (contact us to find out how!).
Available only for Full Event Access and Table ticketholders and must be ordered no later than April 10th. Staff will reach out to registered ticketholders to offer Experience Box options in early March.
Please note: Experience Boxes are completely optional and available for an additional cost. The cost of the Experience Boxes is not tax-deductible.
What is Wildlife World?
Wildlife World is a virtual gathering space where table captains can video chat with their table guests, attendees can meet and chat with CNW field staff, and everyone can learn more about CNW’s latest accomplishments. This post-event social gathering (or after party!) is available to all ticketholders and will take place after the live event wraps up from 7:00 p.m. PT on. Please note, to access Wildlife World, you’ll need to use a laptop or desktop computer (no smartphones or tablets) and a Chrome or Firefox web browser.
