On Thursday, November 2nd at 6:30 PM, Front Street restaurant in Provincetown will host an intimate 5-course dinner and wine pairing in honor of WILD CARE INC., a wildlife rehabilitation center located in Eastham. The cost is $250 per person, RSVP required. In 2016, this dinner generated over $11,000 in support of WILD CARE’S mission of rehabilitating and releasing sick, injured, and orphaned wildlife. “This fundraiser has become a wonderful tradition for Wild Care. Front Street owners (and Chefs) Donna Aliperti, and Kathy Cotter, have been extremely generous and supportive of our work,” states WILD CARE Executive Director, Stephanie Ellis. “WILD CARE is dependent on public donations. We do not receive state, federal, or municipal funding, and the cost of running WILD CARE for one month is upward of $18,000. We have already received over 1,600 animals through our door this year – a record year. There are so many animals in need of our help, and this event is critical in providing money to fund Wild Care’s operations.”
At the event, owner Kathy Cotter, who is also a local artist, will be auctioning off several original paintings at the event – featuring animals, landscapes, florals, and lighthouses. Kathy is donated 50% of the proceeds from these paintings, to Wild Care. Additionally, any purchase of paintings through her website between now and November 2nd, and Kathy will donate 50% of proceeds to Wild Care. www.kcotter.com. (Purchasing online, please specify 50% to Wild Care.)
Front Street Restaurant is located on 230 Commercial Street, Provincetown. Visit Front Street at: http://frontstreetrestaurant.com
