50th Anniversary Gala

For 50 years, a visit to Riveredge has been the start of something wild for countless children, adults, and families. Join us for a special night at the West Bend Mutual Insurance Prairie Center in West Bend as we celebrate the pioneers, visionaries, and adventurers who comprise the founders and future of this wild movement.

The Schedule
5 PM: The Start of A 'Wild' Night

The Riveredge spirit will follow us to West Bend Mutual Insurance as you journey through the prairie on a wagon ride, take home unique silent auction packages, snack on hors d'oeuvres, sip on cocktails, and surround yourself with good friends and good music. You can even bid on the silent auction items from your home!

6:30 PM: Dinner

Feast on a fresh farm-to-table dinner and toast to 50 years of Riveredge. 

7:30 PM: Supporting The Future

Be the first to experience the premiere of Riveredge’s 50th Birthday video produced by Eric Larsen, bid on one-of-a-kind experiences, and help send Riveredge off to its next 50 years of adventures.

Such a special anniversary requires a special venue. We are so honored our friends at West Bend Mutual Insurance have invited us to hold this year's event in their beautiful Prairie Center (1900 S 18th Ave, West Bend, WI).  There's even a Riveredge connection- Riveredge staff helped plan and plant the gorgeous eponymous prairie you'll get the chance to explore!

We're upgrading the dress code a bit with the venue. Cocktail dress is recommended for the gala. Don't worry, we'll be back in full flannel force next year! 


This year, we’re creating a special Keepsake Program Book for all attendees to honor Riveredge supporters, leaders and friends. Show support or send a special message by securing a placement in the Program Book to honor founders, staff, volunteers or Riveredge Kids! Keepsake Placements are due by August 20th. Please email placement requests or questions to Renee at rbucholz@riveredge.us
