Sup­port­ers of the South Florida Wildlife Cen­ter (SFWC), an af­fil­i­ate of The Hu­mane So­ci­ety of the United States, are gear­ing up to mi­grate to “Wild for Wildlife,” the in­au­gu­ral ben­e­fit hosted by and tak­ing place at Eau Palm Beach Re­sort & Spa Dec. 7.

The ocean­side fes­tiv­i­ties will in­clude ve­gan hors d’oeu­vres, craft cock­tails, live mu­sic, a silent auc­tion and wildlife pho­tog­ra­phy of pa­tients from the SFWC, taken by ac­claimed pho­tog­ra­pher Aaron An­sarov, whose work has been pub­lished in Na­tional Ge­o­graphic and Smith­so­nian mag­a­zines.

“We are thrilled to have Eau Palm Beach Re­sort & Spa host our in­au­gu­ral ‘Wild For Wildlife’ event,” said Sherry Sch­lueter, ex­ec­u­tive di­rec­tor for SFWC. “Be­cause of their gen­eros­ity, all funds raised that evening can go di­rectly to the South Florida Wildlife Cen­ter’s trauma cen­ter, which will en­able us to con­tinue to res­cue and re­ha­bil­i­tate in­jured and or­phaned South Florida wildlife. We warmly in­vite ev­ery­one who loves wildlife to join us for this fun and el­e­gant event on Dec. 7.”
