Please pass the word to your friend, business, and group sites on face books and in neighborhood papers. Have a fantastic dinner and help support HAWKEs mission of wildlife rehabilitation and environmental education. You can purchase advanced reservation with your credit card on Pay Pal , or mail to HAWKE PO BOX 188 Elkton, Fl 32033 . Come to their private upstairs dining room of this famous downtown Restaurant on 102 San Marco Ave. St. Augustine. In addition to the dinner, a "birds of prey" demonstration will be given by HAWKE President Melanie Cain-Stage  , with Poe an albino crow, Athena, the Barred Owl  and other critters. If you cannot climb up stairs, you can be seated downstairs and Melanie will bring down the wildlife to your table. 

HAWKE has been there helping wildlife at no cost to the public since 1987 and is a 501 3 c not for profit. The majority of their income depends on memberships and fundraisers to support the rehabilitation of hundreds of injured or orphaned wild birds, mammals, and reptiles each year. Their goal is releasing healthy wildlife back to their natural habitat. There is no state or federal funding for wildlife rehabilitation and many centers in Florida have closed, or are no longer accepting patients, so fundraisers like the “Dinner for the Birds” and “Dine on the Wild Side “ are critical for helping pay expenses. HAWKE, is the only wildlife center in NE Florida and one of the few in the entire state set up to raise and care for injured and orphaned bobcats as well as river otters and all species of birds of prey including falcons, eagles, and other difficult species. If HAWKE closes, there will be no wildlife center to take your calls or wildlife. You can become a member for as little as $25 single and $35 for a family. HAWKE is blessed to have Lorna MacDonald, her family, and her staff hosts this annual event to show their support for wildlife rehabilitation.  The award-winning Raintree Restaurant, one of North Florida’s finest restaurants and is in a century-old Victorian building that is one of the last survivors of a period of development that began in St. Augustine after the end of the Civil War. The New York Times once noted that, “there should be special awards for restaurants that manage to combine quality food with historic surroundings, buildings that proudly proclaim their heritage and encourage diners in their own remembrance of things past.” This year, the Raintree will offer the following spectacular selection.  If you cannot make the Dinner any donation to HAWKE would be appreciated. Vegetarians can call a day ahead to make changes. A donation of $80.00 per person or $150 a couple discount for HAWKE members and Non members a donation of $85 or $160 per couple includes every thing even the tip.
