Typically attended by more than 500 guests, A Wild Night for Wildlife has earned a reputation of being the “fun fundraiser”. Festivities for 2013, will include live music performed by The Times Square Orchestra; mouth-watering hors d’ouevres prepared by Buoy One; beer by Southampton Publick House; Tito’s Handmade organic vodka, and wine from Lieb Cellars and Wolffer Estate Vineyards.

QWR is also pleased to welcome back ABC’s Bill Ritter as Auctioneer. Attendees will also have the unique opportunity to get up close and personal with some of the Refuge’s resident animals.
