The Evelyn Alexander Wildlife Rescue Center of the Hamptons celebrated their 12th Annual Get Wild! Summer Gala at Joan and Bernard Carl's Little Orchard Garden in Southampton this past weekend. The event honored Jay Schneiderman, Southampton Town Supervisor, and Susan McGraw Keber, East Hampton Town Trustee, and welcomed distinguished guests to celebrate the united efforts to rehabilitate animals and successfully release them back into the wild across Long Island. Honorary Chairs for the event were Ellen and Chuck Scarborough, while Benefit Co-Chairs included Hilaria And Alec Baldwin, Alexandra And Peter Campbell, Joan And Bernard Carl, Kim Cattral, Brigid Fitzgerald And Michael Katz, Nancy Juvonen And Jimmy Fallon, Linda And Ben Lambert, and Beth Stern.

"It's important for us to recognize the continued efforts of everyone involved with The Evelyn Alexander Wildlife Rescue Center. 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, hosts Joan and Bernard Carl, benefit co-chairs plus committee, and sponsors," said Director of Development Shelley Berkoski.

This wasn't just an average summer gala. Get Wild! showcased the Rescue Center's very own rescue animals - including a great horned owl who was rescued after falling out of its nest. The work of The Evelyn Alexander Wildlife Rescue Center gives animals a second chance at life after experiencing traumatic, near-death accidents. Seeing these rehabilitated animals in-person reminded guests of how fortunate our community is to have these incredible animals in our backyards. Other animals included Cloud and Sonia, two Red Tail Hawks, Eastern Screen Owls named Archimedes and Athena, and Millennium, a Peregrine Falcon.

After meeting the animals, guests enjoyed live music from Ludmilla Brazil, along with cocktails and light vegetarian fare.
