Even though we can’t gather in person, we’ll still have our annual raffle for great prizes and the Silent ‘Hawk’tion which raises funds for our patients.

Highlights from 2019’s Flock ‘n’ Roll Benefit for the Birds
The benefit returned in November 2019 with a vintage feel and a classy purpose- helping the wild patients here at Tri-State. Guests enjoyed the sounds of the 50’s, silent ‘hawktion’ items, a fabulous meal, and much more. Thanks to our donors, volunteers, sponsors, guests, and bidders, we raised over $98,000 for the birds. Thank you to everyone who helped make 2019’s Benefit for the Birds one of the best ever!
