The McConnell Foundation @ Lema Ranch

Peak Experience Auction is Lassen Park Foundation’s premier fundraiser throughout the year.  This year’s theme is “The Roaring 20’s”  to reflect the excitement of joining a celebration of our beautiful park, and continuing our philanthropic impact for decades to come. Dressing in the theme is optional.  Be ready for an evening of fun and flair as we enjoy a delicious dinner and support the Foundation’s work.

Lassen Park Foundation’s Annual Gala is a longstanding philanthropic event that supports the ongoing programs and capital campaigns of the Lassen Park Foundation. Over the past 6 years the Annual Gala has raised over $620,000 through the generosity of corporations, foundations, and individuals in the community.  

In 2022 over 900 underserved youth are experiencing a summer camping experience at Lassen Volcanic National Park thanks to Lassen Park Foundation. For generations, Lassen Volcanic National Park has been a place of exploration, discovery, and adventure for kid of all ages. We invite you to join us at this year’s Peak Experience Auction and be part of continuing this tradition 


Lassen Park Foundation is a 501(c)3 non-profit corporation that provides philanthropic support to Lassen Volcanic National Park.  We invite all, especially youth, to experience and preserve the natural and cultural resources of this special place. LPF is an official non-profit partner of Lassen Volcanic National Park.  
Your support enables LPF to provide annual grants to underserved youth groups attending the Volcano Adventure Camp, to improve visitor experiences, and encourage diverse populations to enjoy the park. 



Guests will welcome the return of our in-person gala event featuring a cocktail reception, dinner, live auction, entertainment, and dancing. They’ll mingle with LPF Board Members, park enthusiasts, and community leaders. Live auction bidding will be conducted in the traditional, verbal manner with exciting items and experiences available exclusively for event attendees.

During the week prior to Saturday evening,  fans of Lassen worldwide will participate in a silent auction for unique gifts.  The silent auction will conclude just before Saturday’s live auction begins.



The event will be held on Saturday, September 17th, 2022 at The McConnell Foundation's Lema Ranch location (800 Shasta View Dr., Redding, Ca 96003). Doors open at 5:30pm followed by dinner service at 7pm and Live Auction 7:30pm.  Anderson Rotary will be on hand to run the bar for everyone. (Thank you Anderson Rotary!)

Seating will be on the patio outside the Lema Ranch building with Silent and Live Auction items displayed inside the lobby.  Normal weather that time of year is hot until the sun sets, followed by a clear cool evening on the patio.
