Harvest Dine-Out Raises $2,800 for Wild Care
On Thursday, October 19th, from 4 PM-8:30 PM, Van Rensselaer’s (VR’s) Restaurant in S. Wellfleet hosted a Harvest “Dine-Out” Dinner to support Wild Care, a wildlife rehabilitation hospital located in Eastham. Guests were treated to an exquisite vegan/vegetarian Prix Fixe meal, with 100% of Prix Fixe proceeds donated to Wild Care. Additionally, a percentage of proceeds from the regular menu was donated to Wild Care.
“VR’s owners Diane and Peter Hall have been incredibly good to Wild Care, and to the community,” states Wild Care Executive Director, Stephanie Ellis. “Since 2012, VR’s has hosted an annual dinner in our honor. It has become a seasonal tradition that we look forward to every year. The chefs at VR’s are very talented, and patrons were treated to delicious food and desserts representing the bounty of the season. This year, we brought special guests “Nickerson”, Wild Care’s educational screech owl, and “#45” our educational Eastern Box Turtle, as a special treat for our guests. This fundraiser will help Wild Care continue its mission of providing personalized care for injured wildlife, and raising awareness about the impacts wildlife are facing on Cape Cod. Thank you to VR’s Owners Diane and Peter Hall for their kindness and generosity. Thank you also to Executive Chef Derek Langlois, Sous Chef Andrew Carter, and Chef Becky Alexander and the VR’s staff, and to all who attended the dinner in support of Wild Care. Last but not least, thank you to the following businesses that provided wine donations. The donations of wine helped to underwrite costs of the event, and were most thoroughly enjoyed by guests! Classic Wine Imports, Horizon Beverage, MS Walker Inc., and Ruby Wine.”

A “Loony” Adventure
August of 2020 was HOT—the hottest in 120 years of record keeping according to WBUR. I spent much of it in my studio. As you might remember from last month, I’ve been nursing a sore ankle bone (no clue as to why as is often the case as we age). SREAD ALL NEWS
