WILD About CROW, originally planned for this Saturday, has been pushed back to Friday, March 11th due to the surge in COVID cases.
“The health of our attendees, our staff and our animals is our foremost concern. Wild about CROW is attended by many of our hospital staff handling our Ambassador Animals and we couldn’t risk potential exposure to them or to the attendees,” noted CROW’s Executive Director Alison Charney Hussey.
The event is being held at the historic Burroughs Home and Gardens in downtown Fort Myers.
The purchase period for discounted tickets at the price of $150 per person will be extended. On Monday, February 21, 2022 at 5:00 p.m., the ticket 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 $1750. 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!
WILD will feature a sit-down dinner, appearances by CROW’s Animal Ambassadors, and plenty of fun surprises for guests to show their support for CROW. Themed animal print masks will be provided for attendees and tables will be socially distanced to allow guests a fun, wild, and safe night! Jen Stacy of ABC7 will emcee and assist auctioneer Chris Marchaund, sponsored by Spivey Law Firm, to raise both awareness and funds for CROW’s mission. Of course, great music, sponsored by Superior Title, will be provided by southwest Florida native, DJ Robert McDonald of New Beginnings Events.
