On Saturday, July 20, 2013, the Quogue Wildlife Refuge will hold its 7th Annual Wild Night for Wildlife Benefit Gala, a fundraising event that celebrates the wonder and beauty of nature while promotion the refuge's mission of environmental and awareness. It will be held at the home of Paul and Jane Dietche in the Village of Quogue from 7 to 10 p.m., with an exclusive VIP hour at 6 pm, featuring a historic house tour for guests who donate $750 or more per person. The event has typically been attended by more than 500 guests in the past.
This year's gala will include live music by The Times Square Orchestra, hors d'oeuvres perpared by Buoy One, beer by Southampton Publick House, Tito's handmade organic vodka and wine crafted by local vineyards. There will also be live and silent auctions including a Meet and Greet with CNN'S Anderson Cooper, custom-made birdhouses from area architects and builders. ABC's Bill Ritter will be this year's auctioneer. And of course, attendees will have the opportunity to get up-close-and-personal with some of the refuge's resident animals.
The Quogue Wildlife Refuge spreads across 305 acres of protected land, with over seven miles of trails that include habitats like the Long Island Pine Barrens, wetlands, bogs, a field and a tidal estuary.
