Roving Reporter | "A Wingding of a Tropical Wing Ding" - $20,000 Raised! | 5 Photos and Text by Jeanette Larson

"Wings Rescue Center hosted its first major fundraiser on Saturday, October 22 at the Rockport County Club. Attendees enjoyed a sumptuous dinner, music by the Riptides, a silent auction, and more. A lively live auction sold the special centerpiece cake created by Melissa Bohannon. Also present was "Sydney," a rescued dove that serves as an education bird since he cannot be released back into the wild. Wings Rescue Center is raising funds to purchase land for a rehabilitation center. Approximately $20,000 was raised at the Tropical Wing Ding fundraising event." - Jeanette Larson
