Currumbin Wildlife Hospital celebrates 30th year at its Benefit Under the Stars fundraiser

The Currumbin Wildlife Hospital Foundation will play host to its annual Benefit Under the Stars to raise much needed funds to continue its thirty year legacy of treating sick and injured wildlife.

Held at Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary on May 25 2019, the event will bring together the community and means to drive fundraising and enable the Hospital to continue treating and caring for Australia’s wildlife.

Senior Vet and General Manager of the Currumbin Wildlife Hospital, Dr. Michael Pyne, said it is costing the Hospital over a million dollars to help treat and care for the number of sick/injured animals that are admitted daily.

“Treating over 11,000 patients in the past 12 months has cost our Wildlife Hospital one million dollars,” said Dr. Pyne.

“The equipment we require to treat these animals is expensive, but it is essential in ensuring a quick recovery and improving the outcome for our patients.”

The Currumbin Wildlife Hospital Foundation’s Benefit Under the Stars is the largest fundraiser of the year and an opportunity for people to enjoy an elegant evening of fine dining and various auctions, while raising necessary funds to help secure the future and continue the important work that the Hospital undertakes.

“Each donation we receive is one step closer to funding various projects and equipment required to help save our precious Australian wildlife,” Dr. Pyne said.

Benefit Under the Stars will be held at the Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary on Saturday, 25th May 2019 from 6:00pm.

Attendees will take a trip on the miniature railway to see the new Wildskies, Free Flight Bird Show and meet the amazing wildlife that take up residence at the Sanctuary.
