Maui Spa celebrates its ‘Wild Side’ to raise $4,000 for Wildlife Care Center
On August 27, the Maui Spa & Wellness Center hosted “The Wild Side of The Maui Spa” a Boca Festival Day’s event, which benefited the SPCA Wildlife Care Center (WCC), a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. The event raised nearly $4,000 for the organization.
Nearly 100 people attended the Rooftop at The Maui, which was transformed into a Hawaiian paradise, where different restaurants offered vegetarian delights and desserts. The magical night included a silent auction, chair massages, Hawaiian music and fire dancing.
The WCC has been serving South Florida for nearly 40 years. The organization’s mission is to rescue, rehabilitate and release native wildlife that has been harmed or displaced; to treat and place certain domestic, exotic and farm animals; and to educate the public toward co-existence with all animals. With 4.5 acres of property, three ambulances, 70 employees and 600 volunteers, the WCC is home to up to 700 injured, harmed or orphaned animals at any given time. Last year nearly 14,000 sick, injured and orphaned animals were admitted to the Center.
Sponsors included: Macaroni Grill, Panera Bread, NexStore Market, Sublime Restaurant, Café Emunah, Yorganic Foods, Catered By France, Inc., The Orchid Tea Roo, Advanced Productions & Entertainment Inc., Ohana Arts, Universal Fun, Melissa Korman Photography, Print Dynamics and Mary Whistler of Whistler Media LLC.
