Virtual auction for Cape Coral Friends of Wildlife is now live | News, Sports, Jobs
For the editor:
Cape Coral Friends of Wildlife is holding its second virtual auction to protect and preserve Cape Coral’s wildlife. Donations will go towards our burrowing owl and gopher tortoise care program as well as community education. Part of the proceeds will go towards purchasing habitat where protected species such as the endangered burrowing owl, gopher tortoise and little blue heron live. We are also looking to acquire land adjacent to canals and lakes that are home to manatees and many waterfowl, wading birds and fish.
The annual Burrowing Owl Festival – Wildlife & Environmental Expo is our main fundraiser.
The auction is ongoing and you can bid until February 27.
Auction items include gift cards for The Melting Pot (Fort Myers), The Pawnbroker Restaurant (Fort Myers), Cruisers Club (Cape Coral), Jet’s Pizza, Bert’s Bar and Grill (Matlacha), Blue Pointe Oyster Bar and Seafood Grill (Fort Myers), Matanzas (Fort Myers Beach), Cantina Laredo (Fort Myers), White (Fort Myers), Lobster Lady (Cape Coral), and many more wonderful restaurants in the area.
