ST. CHARLES – The Tap House Grill, 3341 W. Main St., St. Charles, is sponsoring a fundraiser for the Fox Valley Wildlife Center for the month of August.
“It’s the end of the summer, and we are really struggling financially. Funds are drained because of the busy baby season,” volunteer Andrea Krueger wrote in an email. “We hope to raise $5,000 to continue our mission of helping wildlife in need.”
To support the fundraiser, customers can go to the Tap House for lunch or dinner, donate $5 to the wildlife center and get a coupon for a free appetizer for a future visit.
On Aug. 22, the wildlife center staff and volunteers will be at the restaurant with some of the center’s education animals, as well as sponsoring a raffle for a Kindle Fire and a $50 gift certificate card to Shima’s Sushi Japanese Restaurant, 40W222 Lafox Road, Campton Hills.
The Fox Valley Wildlife Center, at the Elburn Forest Perserve, 45W061 Route 38, Elburn, is a nonprofit organization that operates on fundraisers and donations.
Proceeds from the fundraiser will benefit the injured, orphaned and displaced wildlife brought into the center.
