Spaghetti Feed & Silent Auction

Thank you to everyone who attended the Spaghetti Feed!

We served approximately 300(!) plates of spaghetti, and thanks to all of you, over $9,000 was raised throughout the evening. These funds will go towards annual expenses like feeding the raptors, purchasing medical and rehabilitation supplies, and improving buildings.

Thank you to everyone who was able to attend, bid on items, buy raffle tickets, and engage in the bird presentations.  An extra thank you to those who donated the food, silent auction items and bake sale items. The Black Hills Raptor Center would not exist without you.

Save the date!

 

The 2nd Annual Riding for Raptors Poker Run will be on July 6, 2024!

Our mission is to conserve and protect native birds of prey and their natural habitats through education, rehabilitation, and research.
