Have a fantastic dinner and help wildlife at the same time. HAWKE, the Humane Association of Wildlife Care and Education, Inc. announces their 19th Annual "Dinner for the Birds" to benefit HAWKE's mission of wildlife rehabilitation and environmental education. The dinner will be held at 7:00 PM in the private upstairs dining room of the famous Raintree Restaurant in St. Augustine, FL (102 San Marco Ave.) In addition to the dinner, a "Birds of Prey" demonstration will be given by HAWKE Curator and President Melanie Cain-Stage. With Poe an albino Crow, an American Kestrel and our newly hatched box turtles, you're in for a treat. It is limited to 55 seats so please get your reservation in ASAP. 

HAWKE has been 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 fund raisers and memberships to support the rescue and rehabilitation of hundreds of injured wild birds, mammals and reptiles each year with the goal of releasing healthy wildlife back to their natural habitat. There is no state or federal funding for wildlife rehabilitation and many centers in NE Florida have closed or are no longer accepting patients, so fundraisers like the Dinner for the Birds are critical for HAWKE's mission. 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 and other difficult species. If HAWKE closes their doors, there will be no wildlife center to take your calls or found wildlife. You can become a member for as little as $25 - Single and $35 - Family.

HAWKE is blessed to have Lorna MacDonald, her family, and her staff host 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.
