Have a Heart for Wildlife Gala - Equine Country in Jacksonville
Saturday, February 13th at 4PM
Possumwood Acres Wildlife Sanctuary is holding their inaugural gala. The Possumwood Acres Wildlife Sanctuary has been serving the area for 12 years, and is 100% volunteer driven. Schools participate in field trips to sanctuary, in order to teach the children about conservation. They are one of the only true sanctuaries in NC. Located on the coast of NC, the Possumwood Acres Wildlife Sanctuary rehabilitates over 1,000 patients a year. They do not receive any sort of state or government funding. Possumwood Acres is only able to support itself through generous individuals, such as yourself, business sponships & through grant awards.
This black-tie event will have a gourmet dinner, sponsored by Special Events Catering,followed by up close encounters with our education ambassadors (the animals of Possumwood). You will have the opportunity to adopt one for the year (Adoption covers their expenses for the year, sorry but you can not actually take them home).
You will get your pictures taken with the animals you adopt. There is also a silent auction- prizes include a Cancun vacation, Disney World tickets, a team lithographed Carolina Panthers Football, local weekend beach stay and many more. After the auction there will be dancing and fun provided by BTA Entertainment!
Tickets are $60/single, $100/couple & each additional after a couple is $50.
