Get Wild! The Evelyn Alexander Wildlife Rescue Center of the Hamptons 8/20/11
Southampton, N.Y. August 20, 2011. The yearly 'Get Wild' event allows us to see the dollars that The Evelyn Alexander Wildlife Rescue Center raises in action. Rescued and rehabilitated wildlife and handlers are present at the event. This year I had the pleasure of meeting a feisty red tailed hawk and an owl, who I was told is the fiercest predator on Long Island. I always look forward to hearing the stories about the animals. This years setting was at a magnificent ocean front estate. The event chairs were Avis Richards, Beth Ostrosky Stern and Marcy Warren. The Center, formerly known as The Wildlife Rescue Center, honors the late Evelyn Alexander. The organization has grown from a few friends to over 1,000 members and supporters in the past few years and is a not-for-profit hospital for wild animals.

I arrived a bit late and missed a lot of people including Howard Stern and Beth Ostrosky, Ellen and Chuck Scarborough, Joni and Christopher Fischer, Jean Shafiroff and others. You can view photos on http://www.timessquaregossip.com and http://www.societyallure.com.
