Bighorn Benefit Dinner & Auction

Event Details

Joshua Tree National Park Association is pleased to announce its first annual Bighorn Benefit Dinner & Auction at The Soundstage located in Pioneertown, CA, on September 23, 2023 from 5-8 p.m., to benefit the Joshua Tree National Park’s Desert bighorn sheep monitoring program.

The evening will include a catered dinner, an open bar sponsored by Joshua Tree Distilling Co., live music, special guest speakers from Joshua Tree National Park, and a live auction hosted by Z107.7 radio personality Gary Daigneault.

The money raised from this event will allow JTNP researchers to coordinate surveys on bighorn sheep and purchase the necessary equipment needed to survey their populations. The funds raised from this event will help to ensure these critical habitats in the park are protected from disturbance. The results from this monitoring program may provide telling information about how we can help support and protect bighorn populations across the Mojave Desert.

Not only will attending the Bighorn Benefit Dinner & Auction support an important program for Joshua Tree National Park, but you’ll also get the opportunity to bid on an assortment of unique auction items. Some of the auction items include a private 1-hour flight in a 210 Cessna plane over our beautiful California desert with a desert naturalist, flown by a commercially licensed pilot of 45 years; a 2-night stay at the Ace Hotel Palm Springs with a $100 food and beverage voucher; a guided hike that ends with dinner under the stars and a night sky presentation with an astronomer from Joshua Tree Excursions; entrance to a public Sound Bath at the world famous Integratron; private pottery lessons at ZZIEE Ceramics, artwork by Melissa Lakey, Naomi Brown, and Cher Townsend; tickets to the upcoming Joshua Tree Music Festival; and so much more!

Join us for an unforgettable evening for a worthy cause at The Soundstage nestled within the heart of Pioneertown, a western wonderland filled with starry skies and the natural beauty of the surrounding desert.
