Mohonk Preserve’s 25th
Annual Benefit Auction was a huge success!

We’re thrilled to announce that Mohonk Preserve’s 25th Annual Benefit Auction on September 17, 2022 raised more than $345,000! We’re especially pleased to report that over $129,000 of the total raised was through direct donations to support environmental education, conservation, land stewardship, and visitor experience.

Funds raised at this year’s event will help us to continue our work to safeguard more than 8,000 acres of the Shawangunk Mountains and to assist more than 300,000 annual visitors to be inspired by nature.

Thank you to auction attendees, sponsors, ticket and table buyers and item donors. Your involvement helped to make the event a special and memorable evening for all!
