Wing Over The Wetland

A Fall Evening To Benefit The John Bunker Sands Wetland Center
The first annual Wings Over the Wetland Benefit on October 19, 2011 was a resounding success!    A cool fall evening greeted over 350 sponsors and guests for a night filled with memorable food, lively spirits, foot stomping live bluegrass music and live raptors and American alligators.  Many attendees took advantage of the crisp cool air to explore the boardwalk and spy on our numerous species of birds and wildlife.  Over 100 individual donors and organizations raised over $200,000 for the continued development and expansion of our education and research programs at the John Bunker Sands Wetland Center.  A huge thank you to our donors and supporters for such a generous response and continued support.  I would especially like to thank our honorary chair, Mrs. Caroline Rose Hunt; co-chairs, Jacob & Lindy Sands, Jim & Sallie Parks and the host committee for their dedicated guidance.  And also a very special thank you to the many volunteers that worked behind the scenes making our night memorable.  I look forward to reporting the Wetland Centers' many achievements over the coming year at our next benefit in the fall of 2012.
