Eastham. July 18, 2019  Wild Care, a wildlife rehabilitation center located in Eastham, enjoyed the second annual “Swooping In for Wild Care”, a fundraising event in honor of Wild Care, hosted by Addison Art Gallery. Spearheaded by artists SaraJane Doberstein and Amy Sanders, and gallery owner Helen Addison. “Swooping in for Wild Care” included an exhibit of new works, prize drawing, local author book signings, and a visit from Wild Care’s four-legged and feathery friends. The event was held at Addison Art Gallery on June 22nd, located at 43 S. Orleans Rd., (Rt 28) Orleans from 5-7 PM.

Attendees enjoyed meeting multiple local artists, along with demonstrations from Amy Sanders and SaraJane Doberstein explaining their unique painting techniques.  Eastern Screech Owls Up Up & Nickerson, and GARV the Eastern Box Turtle, Wild Care’s educational ambassadors were in attendance to meet and greet guests.  Local authors of  “Big Night for Salamanders” by Sarah  Lamstein  and ‘Cape Cod Bear”, by Kathleen Ready showcased their book and we all enjoyed the beautiful instrumentals performed by Peggy Gerber, principal flutist for the Cape Community Orchestra.

A gracious Thank You to Helen Addison, Amy Sanders, and SaraJane Doberstein for their efforts in hosting "Swooping In for Wild Care" at Addison Art Gallery this past June 22nd and helping Wild Care raise over $1,000! Thank you to our amazing volunteers and all who attended and to our volunteer photographer, Leo Seletsky for the  beautiful photos.
