We Raised $1,000 at “Wild Fiesta” at GUAPO’s and support Wild Care!
Thank you to all who attended our Wild Fiesta at Guapo’s this past Sunday, August 27th. Great food, margaritas, a Cornhole tournament and more. Thanks to you we raised $1,000 to help care for the animals at Wild Care.
We’d like to thank Guapo’s for their generosity, and for hosting us again this year. Thank you also to Snowy Owl Coffee Roasters for providing their delicious cold brew, and to Garvey Communication Associates Inc. for sponsoring the care of our Eastern Box Turtle #45 (special guest at this event)! Special thanks to Leo Seletsky for photo documenting the event.
Orleans, MA (August 18, 2017) – GUAPO’s and Wild Care Cape Cod are teaming up for the second annual “Wild Fiesta” fundraising bash and Cornhole tournament! On Sunday, August 27 from 3-5 pm, revelers are invited to the outside patio at GUAPO’s Orleans for food, games and more, all to benefit Wild Care!
Teams of two are invited to participate in a corn hole tournament at the Fiesta. The winning duo will take home an incredible prize pack, and the $10 entry fee will benefit Wild Care. Teams can register at the event or in advance at http://www.guaposcapecod.com/wildcare/. The GUAPO’s patio will be going in full force, with their Tiki Bar serving up margaritas and beer at a cash bar!
Not a Cornhole player? Not a problem! A $5 donation to Wild Care at the door comes with free appetizers from GUAPO’s, the chance to meet the folks from Wild Care, and, new this year, a chance to meet ‘45’ the Eastern Box Turtle (sponsored by GCAi) and a a chance to meet Wild Care’s new, educational baby Eastern Screech Owl “Up Up”! These animals were rescued by Wild Care and, because these two can’t survive in the wild, they are now a part of Wild Care’s educational program.
Party-goers also will get the chance to win great silent auction prizes from local business, including beer and wine, jewelry, gift cards, a GUAPO’s prize piñata and more.
Snowy Owl Coffee Roasters in Brewster will be on hand with delicious, cold brew coffee samples and more coffee items to enjoy.
Attendees are also encouraged to bring small items on Wild Care’s “Wish List” to help them continue the important work they’re doing. Items range from unflavored Pedialyte and Dawn dish soap and to latex gloves and potted trees. The complete list can be seen at: www.wildcarecapecod.org/wish-list/
“We’re so excited to host Wild Care once again.” said GUAPO’s owner Kyle Parker. “It’s great to see how much they’ve grown since we hosted them last year. We’re happy to be able to continue to help Cape Cod’s wildlife in any way possible.”
Added Stephanie Ellis, Wild Care Executive Director, “This is such a fun event. We are grateful to Guapo’s owners Danna and Kyle for hosting us yet another year at their wonderful Orleans location, and grateful for their love of animals. Proceeds go directly toward caring for all of our patients, at Wild Care. Great fun for a great cause!”
