Charity of choice:
The Wildlife Sanctuary of Northwest Florida:
In honor of Gail’s passion for birds and leadership role in
“Hawks Aloft”, we are asking for donations to support
the mission of our local wildlife sanctuary, which has
many rescued birds of prey, including some eagles.
Supplies could be birdseed, dog food (foxes), laundry
soap/dish soap, peanut butter, or $ so they can buy
what they need.
