Talons, Tastings and Tidbits Annual Event 2017 Sunday, October 29th, 2017
5:00-8:00pm at Venue 252
252 Lawrence St. Eugene OR
Join us at our Annual Benefit for a delightful evening of wine, appetizers, desserts, birds, and good company! Enjoy the experience of Cascades Raptor Center – learning what we do behind the scenes in rescue, rehabilitation and education.
Help us fund this critical work and expand our hospital so we can serve more birds!
Our stunning avian ambassador, Dmitri (Eurasian Eagle Owl), will be given an opportunity to fly overhead! Don't miss this chance to meet Dmitri and other avian representatives and learn about our leading edge training efforts.
Storm Kennedy, well-known radio personality, will be our emcee and auctioneer!
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Your registration fee includes food, drink, and up-close and personal connections to our avian ambassadors. When you enter, you'll receive a large paddle, small paddles and tickets for wine and cider tastings. Winery and cider stations are scattered among tables filled with hors d'oeurves, non-alcoholic drinks, and Raptor Center displays. Desserts will be brought to your table towards the end of the event.
Use your small paddles to make contributions via "Drop the Paddle" raffles for chances to win many fabulous prizes. And then you can "Raise your Paddle" in a modified auction to bid on several items that directly benefit our raptor operations, our raptor hospital, and our efforts in educating the public about birds of prey.
As you mingle during the event, look for several tables with resident raptor ambassadors and trainers to answer all your questions. Be sure to bring your camera for this chance to have up close pictures of these amazing birds.
