Eastham, MA – 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

WILD CARE’s wildlife rehabilitators treat birds, mammals and reptiles brought to the center, with the goal of releasing them back into the wild when they are capable of independent survival. Through public education, WILD CARE works to prevent wildlife casualties and works to engage the community in conservation through volunteerism. Since our founding WILD CARE has accepted over 22,000 wild creatures, representing over 275 species of native birds, mammals and reptiles.
ABOUT FRONT STREET RESTAURANT:
This intimate chef owned venue, located in the downstairs of a Victorian building, is a tucked away mecca for aficionados of fine dining. A few antique booths and hand crafted wooden tables are nestled within brick walls, low ceilings and basket lighting, creating a romantic atmosphere. Donna's extensive Italian menu, both family treasures and recipes garnered through travel and schools, draws a local clientele attracted to the appropriate prices and abundant portions. But it is her remarkably creative continental menu and her partner Kathy's delectable desserts that keep their clients coming back. In a fashion that Donna refers to as "Mediterranean- American fusion", she dishes out delights that change on a weekly basis.
