Sun Sentinel Palm Beach Edition - Society Scene - Palm Beach - - Scenario I -

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.
