Moonlight on the Mountain
A Unique Celebration Under the Light of the Moon

Over $460,000 Raised at Moonlight Gala 2017!

To all of our Moonlight on the Mountain guests, sponsors, and volunteers, we extend a big heartfelt THANK YOU!

Save Mount Diablo had a blast on September 9th at our signature gala, Moonlight on the Mountain, celebrating 46 years of work preserving the beautiful open space in the Mount Diablo area. On a warm summer evening under clear skies and surrounded by great company, guests wined, dined, and danced to live music well into the night.

You, our supporters, helped raise over $460,000 through ticket sales, live and silent cocktail auctions, Fund a Need donations, and sponsorships to protect, restore and defend the Diablo wild lands - so we can all enjoy! That's truly amazing and we're so grateful for your generosity.

We hope to see you next year - stay tuned for the date!
