Prior to dinner, in true raptor fashion, devour mouth watering charcuterie from "Smoking Goose" and sip a signature cocktail; Raptor's Delight, while you tour our Raptor Center. Then, move on to our fine dining tent, refill your beverage and bid on our themed "Birds of Prey Silent Auction". Further support our programs by choosing to "Adopt a Raptor".
Dinner will be a bountiful six course meal created by accomplished Chefs who truly believe in good food and good relationships with local providers. Enjoy great music, a silent auction, Ohio wine and beer, and close encounters with our education raptors, Glen Helen Naturalists and Director of our Raptor Center, Betty Ross.
End your evening with an exceptional decadent dessert that will melt your senses and send you home with the satisfied feeling that you have indeed made a difference in the rehabilitation and care of Raptor's at Glen Helen.
