Tickets are on sale now for the Clinic for the Rehabilitation of Wildlife (CROW)’s fundraising event ‘WILD About CROW’. The event will be held Friday, January 26, 2024, from 5:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. at the historic Burroughs Home and Gardens in downtown Fort Myers.
CROW appreciates the support of Edison National Bank/Bank of the Islands who is returning as the Loggerhead sponsor for the event. “We are delighted to support this great organization once again as the WILD about CROW Presenting Sponsor,” said CEO Geoff Roepstorff, “As a past board member, I am well aware of the mission and the dedication of their staff. It is an honor to invest in the great work they do for Southwest Florida’s wildlife.”
This year, proceeds from the “Under the Sea” themed fundraiser will generate critical funding to rebuild CROW’s Sea Turtle facility. Hurricane Ian destroyed many of the clinic’s outdoor enclosures, and their ability to treat Sea Turtles. CROW fulfills an important role as the only licensed Sea Turtle facility on the west coast of Florida between Sarasota and the Keys.
“WILD is always a fun event and I’m so looking forward to this year’s focus on our sea turtle facility. Getting our sea turtle facility back up and running is our main priority for 2024.” Says Executive Director Alison Charney Hussey. “I hope everyone hurries to get their tickets before they sell out like they have in the past. This will be a don’t miss party!”
WILD will feature a cocktail hour, dinner reception, appearances by CROW’s Animal Ambassadors, and plenty of fun surprises for guests to show their support for CROW.
Early bird general admission tickets are $250 per person through the end of 2023. On January 1, 2024, the price will increase to $275 per person.
Tickets and sponsorships can be purchased online at crowclinic.org. Event sponsors also include Kemps Ridley Beverage Sponsor Sanibel Captiva Trust Company and Scalon Auto Group, Green Sea Turtle Sponsors Spivey Law Firm, Northern Trust, and WWRE Certified Public Accountants.
