SAVE THE DATE for Cedar Run’s biggest fundraiser of the year!
Saturday, July 15th, 2023

Join Cedar Run for an evening of wine tasting, raffles, auctions, along with special appearances by Cedar Run Wildlife Ambassadors.

This evening celebrates those making a difference in our local communities – the staff, resident wildlife, volunteers & supporters of Woodford Cedar Run Wildlife Refuge!

Woodford Cedar Run Wildlife Refuge is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to the preservation of New Jersey’s wildlife and habitats through education, conservation, and rehabilitation, and serves as a community resource on the importance of protecting and enhancing healthy ecosystems for all since 1957.

We are partnering up with our friends at Cheers Wine & Spirits of Voorhees to provide tastings from around the world, as well as local favorites! This event is being held at the Community House of Moorestown. A large selection of raffle baskets and silent auction items will be available for bidding throughout the evening, offering the opportunity to win exclusive experiences and merchandise, all while supporting our environmental education, wildlife rehabilitation, and habitat preservation.

General admission includes wine tasting, meet & greet with live Cedar Run resident wildlife, a chance to win great prizes and supporting your local wildlife organization!
Vegan and vegetarian passed appetizers and lite bites will be available throughout the event.
