Tickets are on sale now for the Clinic for the Rehabilitation of Wildlife (CROW)’s fundraising event ‘WILD About CROW’. The event will take place on Friday, January 20, 2023, from 6:15 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. at the historic Burroughs Home and Gardens in downtown Fort Myers.


“Hurricane Ian will not spoil our fun or stop us from continuing CROW’s mission to save wildlife and educate others on what they can do to save them too,” says Alison Charney Hussey, Executive Director for CROW. “We are thrilled to bring back WILD About CROW for another year and provide an opportunity for those in the community to enjoy themselves as well as supporting our rebuilding efforts.”


CROW welcomes Edison National Bank as the Golden – Bald Eagle Presenting sponsor for the ‘animal print attire optional’ event which will feature a sit-down dinner, a behind-the-scenes look at the inner workings of the CROW Clinic, and plenty of fun surprises for guests to show they are WILD about CROW! The night will include a live auction and, for the first time ever, a silent auction with virtual bidding for out-of-town participants!


“WILD About CROW is one of our favorite events and we are so pleased to be able to support CROW’s rebuilding after the wrath of Ian. So much of our barrier island community and our wildlife were devastated by the storm.  Now more than ever it is imperative that CROW’s work continues,” says Geoff Roepstorff, CEO of Edison National Bank/Bank of the Islands.


Tickets are $250 each for those attending in person. Virtual attendees can register to bid on silent auction items or make a one-time donation! Guests also have the option to become sponsors at various levels to receive VIP status and an invitation to an exclusive gathering prior to the event! In the aftermath of Hurricane Ian, CROW is working to rebuild the Sanibel campus. Join CROW for the fun to raise funds for Florida’s wildlife!


Tickets and sponsorships can be purchased online at or through scanning the QR code with a phone camera. For more information on becoming a sponsor, donating an auction item, or purchasing tickets, please contact Aimee White at [email protected] .
