2021 Crescent Moon Banquet and Auction

Join us on Thursday, September 16, at the Kleffner Ranch, for the Crescent Moon Banquet and Auction – a special, re-envisioned Harvest Moon Banquet – to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the Prickly Pear Land Trust.

This year’s banquet takes place the week of the waxing crescent moon, a moon phase representing positivity and progression towards goals. Here’s to looking forward to the next 25 years of PPLT with hope and positivity!

A Note About Event Changes

Early on, we knew the banquet would look different this year due to the changing event restrictions amidst the pandemic. Out of concern for public safety, we selected the Kleffner Ranch, which allows for increased airflow within the venue. We’re thrilled to be in this more natural environment, which also showcases a fabulous view of the Greenway project.

Due to many missed weddings and special events in 2020, dates at the Kleffner Ranch were quite limited. Thursday, September 16, was the closest we could get to a weekend in September. We realize that being on a Thursday will limit some from joining us and will be moving the silent auction online to allow for more participation.

Additionally, as the barn at the Kleffner Ranch accommodates fewer guests than we’ve previously hosted at the Civic Center, tickets will sell out even faster than usual. So stay tuned for our ticket release in July!

Thank you, Helena, for your tremendous support of this annual event and for rolling with this year’s event changes. If you have any questions about event details, please contact Rachel Rountree at [email protected].
