An Evening IN With Brian Conroy & Holly Pippel

Each year at our annual gala, we celebrate the individual accomplishments and progress of one of our members. It’s an opportunity for them to feel the warmth of the spotlight and shine bright as the star of the show. In 2022, we highlighted bird enthusiast, owner, and photographer Brian Conroy.  From a young age, Brian has a special love of tropical birds, like macaws, had the incredible opportunity to travel to Costa Rica to see them in person. Brian’s mentor, Holly Pippel, is a wildlife photographer based in Montana.

We want to thank all of the sponsors, supporters and friends who made our 2022 virtual gala a tremendous success. Thanks to an overwhelming amount of support from so many generous people, we raised an incredible $82,698. Stay tuned for more details on our 2023 gala!
