You’ll enjoy appetizers and refreshments from southern Illinois businesses, and have an opportunity to bid on a variety of silent auction and live auction items. 

While the Buffalo Tro is all about enjoying an evening of great people, food and music at Touch of Nature, it’s also about how your support helps our four main programming areas: Therapeutic Recreation, Environmental Education, Adventure Education and our Facilities and Services.  Thank you for your generosity in keeping this jewel of Southern Illinois University thriving for many years to come.
