Fundraising Walk to Promote Exotic Bird Adoption and Education




The Refuge for Saving the Wildlife, Inc., a nonprofit rescue and adoption shelter for exotic birds dedicated to educating the public on avian issues, is hosting its annual five-mile fund-raising walk through Glencoe and Winnetka at 9 a.m., September 19. The event honors Sigh, a Moluccan cockatoo and the embodiment of the rescue’s ideals. He arrived at the refuge shortly after its incorporation, at the age of 25, and recently crossed over the rainbow bridge.

The purpose of the walk is to celebrate Sigh’s life, help build public awareness about rescued birds and raise much-needed funds to help Sigh’s feathered brothers and sisters.

 

Donors raising $25 or more will receive a commemorative T-shirt. Location: Begins at Park and Green Bay Rd. parking lot, in Glencoe. For more information and exact location and to register, participate or contribute, call Rich at 847-509-1026 or Karen at 630-340-9937, or visit
