Across the Wild Wild Lagoon!

Our group of Bandit Board Members have opened their saloons (homes), to invite 8 - 10 outlaws to each of their posts. Enjoy dinner, Pegasus Estate Winery wine, and the company of your fellow fugitives in support of the Wild Wild Lagoon. Your Lagoon Team lawmen will place you at your saloon sites; locations and details to follow.  Join us on this wild wild ride to support the Agua Hedionda Lagoon Foundation and it’s investment in environmental education, conservation and access through trails.

Agua Hedionda Lagoon Foundation Gala Details

At the Wild Wild Lagoon, western attire is recommended.  We suggest you polish your boots and be sure to cover your face wearing a bandana; your fellow fugitives will vote on the best, and you can receive a prize! The menu will vary at each saloon, and some saloons will have Vegan or Vegetarian only selections. So pull up your bootstraps and let us know if you don’t eat no stinking MEAT. A selection of silent and live auction packages will be available online; when the lawmen show up we will virtually connect all saloons together for a fight at the Ok Corral raising funds friends and future lagoon stewards. Giddy up!
