For the Birds Wildlife Center Silent Auction Fundraiser Set for Sunday, February 21 in Conjunction With the Key West Artisan Market
The “It’s for the Birds” fundraiser to benefit the Key West Wildlife Center is set for Sunday, February 21, 10 am to 2 pm during the Key West Artisan Market at Indigenous Park parking lot. The regular event at Martello Towers was modified this year to just a fabulous silent auction due to COVID concerns. The Silent Auction will be set on the lawn outside the Center and include raffle items generously donated from a variety of local resorts, businesses and restaurants. Features include original works of art, sailing and watersport excursions, sunset packages, gift certificates and a private charter donated by Hindu Charter's 75' luxury catamaran, SV Argo Navis. The Key West Wildlife Center, located at 1801 White Street, is a non-profit organization providing rescue and rehabilitative care to wildlife from mile marker 0-30 in the Florida Keys. They are a rescue and rehabilitation facility operating as a trauma clinic and field hospital. Their main focus is rescuing and rehabilitating sick, injured or orphaned native wildlife and returning them to the wild. Any businesses wishing to donate or participate should contact the Wildlife Center.
In addition to guest’s opportunity to bid on great prizes, there will be entertainment at the Artisan Market as well as a full bar with beverages and a variety of food for purchase. The Center’s educational wildlife ambassador will be on hand to answer questions about the programs and tours of the Wildlife Center available. Entry to the Artisan Market is free. This is the Center’s busiest time of the year and they appreciate the community’s support for their Wildlife Rescue and Rehabilitation program.
