Tickets are on sale now for the Clinic for the Rehabilitation of Wildlife (CROW)’s fundraising event ‘WILD About CROW’ on Saturday, Jan. 15, 2022, from 6:15 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. at the historic Burroughs Home and Gardens in downtown Fort Myers.
CROW welcomes Edison National Bank as the Golden – Bald Eagle sponsor for the ‘animal print attire optional’ event which will feature a sit-down dinner, appearances by CROW’s Animal Ambassadors, and plenty of fun surprises for guests to show they are WILD about CROW! Themed animal print masks will be provided and tables will be socially distanced to allow guests a fun, wild, and safe night! The night will also include a live auction sponsored by Spivey Law Firm and great music, sponsored by Superior Title, will be provided by southwest Florida native, DJ Robert McDonald, from New Beginnings Events.
“This year, CROW has admitted over 6,000 wildlife patients and only 20 percent come from Sanibel and Captiva Islands where we are located,” says Alison Charney Hussey, Executive Director for CROW. “The other 80 percent come from throughout Lee County which is why we are very excited to be hosting this event off-island for the community to learn more about CROW’s work and show their support for native and migratory wildlife.”
Tickets are $150 per person through the end of 2021. On Jan. 1, 2022, the price will increase to $175 per person. Guests also have the option to purchase a table as an “Awesome Opossum” Host and fill it with 7 of their closest friends or colleagues for $1,750. The Host sponsors will receive entry for two for the Virginia Opossum VIP Reception inside the Burroughs Home before the event with an exclusive meet and greet opportunity with CROW’s Animal Ambassadors, Mina, the Great Horned Owl and Sydney, the American Alligator!
