Since its founding in 1997, the Evelyn Alexander Wildlife Rescue Center of the Hamptons has continuously worked to successfully rehabilitate animals and release them into the wild across Long Island. The organization will celebrate its tireless rescue and rehabilitation efforts at the Center's annual Get Wild! Summer Gala on Saturday, June 23 from 6 to 8 p.m. at Joan and Bernard Carl's picturesque private garden in Southampton. This year will honor Jay Schneiderman, Southampton Town Supervisor and Susan McGraw Keber, East Hampton Town Trustee.

The evening will be filled with live music along with cocktails and light vegetarian fare. All guests are welcome to the cocktail party featuring appearances from some of the rehabilitated animals The Evelyn Alexander Wildlife Rescue Center has helped.

"We're excited to hold our Annual Get Wild! Benefit for the 12th year in a row, this year in collaboration with hosts Joan and Bernard Carl. It's important for us to recognize the continued efforts of everyone involved with The Evelyn Alexander Wildlife Rescue Center," said Shelley Berkoski, Director of Development. "The commitment to rehabilitate Long Island's wildlife is a shared passion for us all. We truly thank our honorary chairs Ellen and Chuck Scarborough, benefit co-chairs plus committee, and sponsors."

The Evelyn Alexander Wildlife Rescue Center is a not-for-profit corporation dedicated to the rehabilitation of wild animals impacted by encroachment of humans on their habitat. It is a grass roots organization that grew from a few concerned friends to a group of over 3,000 members and supporters. The Center is a full-time professional wildlife hospital staffed by licensed rehabilitators, biologists, animal behaviorists and volunteers. Over 300 people have been trained to assist in wildlife rescues. The Wildlife Rescue Center receives more than 10,000 calls each year for information or assistance involving wild animal encounters.

Additionally, the Center provides educational programs to local elementary and secondary schools. Students from local colleges participate in cooperative education programs and internships. The Evelyn Alexander Wildlife Rescue Center's annual operating budget exceeds $650,000, almost all of which comes from generous donors.
