HAWKE, the Humane Association of Wildlife Care and Education, is holding its 23rd annual Wildlife Benefit, “Dine on the Wild Side” at the St. Augustine Alligator Farm on Saturday, May 13. This popular event is sponsored each year by the Alligator Farm Zoological Park in support of HAWKE’s wildlife rehabilitation of injured/orphaned wild birds, mammals and reptiles. Those who purchase wrist bands may enjoy the Alligator Farm on an All Day Come and Go Pass ($25 for age 12 and up; $10 for children) which does not include dinner. Dinner tickets include the all-day pass plus a dinner featuring pasta dishes, stir fry and salads donated from Ned’s Southside Kitchen, Gypsy Cab and the Black Molly Grill.
Dinner tickets are available beginning April 15 at the Alligator Farm Gift Shop, Music Matters or the St. Johns Veterinary Clinic Pet Store: $35 for ages 12 and up and $20 for those under age 12. Children 4 and under are free if they share an adult’s meal.
Tickets may be purchased at the door or online at www.hawkewildlife.org: $40 adults and $25 children.
