The Wildlife Rescue Center of the Hamptons Celebrates 10th Anniversary with Winter Soiree

The Wildlife Rescue Center of the Hamptons recently celebrated its 10th anniversary at New York City’s The Volstead Restaurant & Lounge.

The private event brought animal lovers out of the cold, including honorary board members Beth Ostrosky Stern, documentary filmmaker Avis Richards, Catherine Cahill, Maryann and Bob Marston, actor and film director Kevin Conway and Jane Notar.

The East End organization – known to many for its exciting summertime fundraisers – toasted a decade of wildlife rehabilitation efforts that has now grown to supporting over 1,300 animals per year. On screens placed throughout the space, guests watched footage of past rescue efforts and triumphs while nibbling gourmet bites and sipping a signature cocktail – the Wildlife Rescue Hurricane – specially crafted for the evening.
A touching speech by The Wildlife Rescue Center’s Executive Director Virginia (Ginnie) Frati, thanked guests for their support in assisting the Center, which provides animals with “warmth, veterinary care, pain relieving drugs, rehabilitation and [eventually] release.” Continuing her speech, Ginnie explained that each animal’s stay at the Center “is met with love, care, clean cages, plenty of food and water and top notch veterinary care! People like you support us…thank you for helping us celebrate our Tenth Anniversary!” As guests departed they were treated to exciting goodie bags, which included combs by Celebrity Hairstylist Angelo David of Angelo David Salon, Philippe by Philippe Chow gift certificates, hair care products by Pureology®, Alley O’ Organic Cookie VIP Certificate and a new book, Thank You by Hatherleigh Press.
