Birds of a Feather Flock Downtown for "Wild at Wingswood"

The Center for Birds of Prey’s 4th Annual Fundraising Event Migrates to Memminger 

Spread your wings and soar to the Memminger Auditorium as The Avian Conservation Center hosts its 4th annual "Wild At Wingswood" fundraising event to benefit The Center for Birds of Prey. The Thursday, October 10th event kicks off with a cocktail hour featuring flight demonstrations, close encounters with various birds of prey and a silent auction. Auction items tend toward one-of-a kind experiences such as an outing with the Charleston Harbor Pilots, private fishing charters and sunset sails, and week-long stays in private homes in Saluda, NC and Sullivan's Island. In addition, a limited number of raffle tickets will be available for an original painting by John Carroll Doyle.

A served dinner begins at 7:30 p.m., followed by a live auction featuring a week’s stay for four in Jack Hanna’s Montana home, the naming of a character in Mary Alice Monroe’s next book, a cocktail party for 50 at the Center for Birds of Prey and much more.

Tickets to the event are $125. Dress will be festive cocktail attire, and avian inspiration is welcomed. All proceeds will directly benefit The Center for Birds of Prey and its mission to rehabilitate injured raptors and educate the public about conservation. Order tickets by calling the center at (843) 971-7474 or purchase online at

For convenience, guests are encouraged to park across the street from the Auditorium in the 81 Wentworth Street Parking Garage.
