Recently, The Wildlife Rescue Center of the Hamptons celebrated its 10th anniversary with a cocktail celebration at New York City’s The Volstead Restaurant & Lounge. The private event, held in the exclusive lounge, brought animal lovers out of the cold; those included honorary board members Beth Ostrosky Stern, Avis Richards, Catherine Cahill, Maryann and Bob Marston, actor and film director Kevin Conway, Jane Notar, and New York philanthropist Jean Shafiroff. The East End organization, known to many for its exciting summertime fundraisers, toasted a decade of wildlife rehabilitation efforts that has now grown to supporting over 1,300 animals per year. The candlelit d├ęcor was accented with imagery and footage of the Wildlife Rescue Center’s efforts. Cocktails including the appropriately named the Wildlife Rescue Hurricane (Bacardi, pineapple, orange and passion fruit juice, with a splash of Grenadine), red wine and hors d'oeuvres were enjoyed throughout the night.

A touching speech by The Wildlife Rescue Center’s Executive Director Virginia (Ginnie) Frati, thanked guests for their support in assisting the Center, which provides animals with “warmth, veterinary care, pain relieving drugs, rehabilitation and [eventually] release.” Continuing her speech, Ginnie explained that each animal’s stay at the Center “is met with love, care, clean cages, plenty of food and water and top notch veterinary care! People like you support us…thank you for helping us celebrate our Tenth Anniversary!” As guests departed they were treated to exciting goodie bags, which included combs by Celebrity Hairstylist Angelo David of Angelo David Salon, Philippe by Philippe Chow gift certificates, hair care products by Pureology®, Alley O’ Organic Cookie VIP Certificate and a new book, Thank You by Hatherleigh Press.


A 501 (C)(3) not-for-profit organization dedicated to the rehabilitation of wild animals impacted by encroachment of humans on their habitat. As a grass-roots organization, the Center has grown from a few concerned friends to a group of over 1,000 members and supporters. The Center is a full-time professional wildlife hospital staffed by licensed rehabilitators, biologists, animal behaviorists and volunteers. Located in an area that is a unique and irreplaceable ecosystem, consisting of salt and fresh water wetlands, pine barrens, deciduous forest and meadowland.
