Dinner and Wine Pairing at Karoo – Raised over $1,600!



Eastham, MA– On May 10, 2017, Karoo South African Cuisine restaurant Owner and Chef, Sanette Groenewald, and Manager Kim Willard-Dubois hosted an exquisite 3-course dinner and wine pairing in honor of WILD CARE INC., a wildlife rehabilitation center located in Eastham. The dinner generated over $1,600, in support of WILD CARE’S mission of rehabilitating and releasing sick, injured, and orphaned wildlife. Guests were treated to an intimate evening filled with traditional South African cuisine, and wine donated by M.S. Walker Fine Wines and Spirits.

A highlight of the evening was the debut of Wild Care’s new educational ambassador, “Nickerson” the Eastern Screech Owl. Nickerson has one eye from a tree-felling injury, and is therefore not releasable into the wild. Wild Care hopes to obtain a permit from US Fish and Wildlife Service to keep Nickerson as an educational animal, teaching people about the value Eastern Screech Owls bring to the ecosystem.

“We are so thankful for Sanette’s generosity, and her love of animals”, states WILD CARE Executive Director, Stephanie Ellis. “WILD CARE is dependent on public donations and events. We do not receive state, federal, or municipal funding. Wild Care currently has over 120 animals in our care, and more animals in need of help are coming through our door on a daily basis. The support provided from the community, and businesses like Karoo is critically important to our operations, and we are grateful.”

WILD CARE would like to extend a special thanks to Karoo owner, Sanette Groenewald, Manager Kim Willard-Dubois and their wonderful staff for hosting this event, and to all joined us for this intimate evening. To make a donation to Wild Care, visit http://www.wildcarecapecod.org/donate-today/.
