Nosara Wildlife Rescue celebrated it's 4th annual fundraiser at the beautiful clubhouse and gardens of Selvamar on February 3rd. This was another fun time for all Nosarinians and visitors alike with free bocas and a cash bar.
Many items were up for grabs at the silent auction, with Ric Bryant hosting another successful live auction. With the entry price dropped to a $30 donation, the event was well attended.
When the dust settled, Nosara Wildlife Rescue netted approximately $6,500. Several auction items were held back for an Auction by Email to come in the near future.
