Migration to Memminger

Thursday, October 9th

6:30-9:30pm

Migration to Memminger, the annual fundraiser of the Avian Conservation Center and Center for Birds of Prey will celebrate the profound importance of avian species who annually weave our planet together through connective flyways during migration.  Funds raised will support the Center’s ongoing mission of identifying and addressing vital environmental issues by providing medical care to injured birds of prey and shorebirds, and through educational, research and conservation initiatives.

This distinctive annual event will offer participants a rare and intimate encounter with the Center’s resident collection of hawks, eagles, falcons, kites, and owls, all while enjoying delicious hors d’oeuvres and cocktails within the elegant Memminger setting.  Live and silent auctions will offer unique and special items and experiences, and one lucky raffle winner will walk away with an original John Carroll Doyle.

Priced at $125 per attendee, tickets are available online here or by calling the Center at (843) 971-7474.

We will have an amazing silent auction with too many incredible items to list here, but please enjoy a preview of our live auction below!
