 Highlights from 2017’s Benefit for the Birds

The benefit returned in November 2017 with a casual feel and a classy purpose- helping the wild patients here at Tri-State. Guests enjoyed a buffet-style dinner and music by Amber Rae and the Swinging Foxes.

After dinner,  guests busted out their dancing shoes and joined us on the dance floor for a presentation and social dance instruction from the University of Delaware Swing Club. 

Thanks to our donors, volunteers, sponsors, guests, and bidders, we raised over $100,000 for the birds!

Thank you to everyone who helped make 2017’s Benefit for the Birds one of the best ever!
