The Friends of the Wildlife Sanctuary would like to extend our heartfelt thanks to everyone who came out to support “Sanctuary by Starlight.” You helped us exceed our own expectations and create a memorable evening. Many caught up with old friends and made new ones at this wonderful event.

The skies cleared beforehand, allowing guests to enjoy the stars and planets thanks to Wayne Kuhn of the Green Bay Astronomy Club and his telescope. The illuminated waterfalls and pathways, and luminaries along the floating boardwalk were the perfect backdrop for a beautiful fall evening walk. An attendee, Chris Rand, shot the amazing photo of the event that night.

In the heated tent, everyone enjoyed delicious cuisine from Skaliwags and Celtic music of Dave Duffey. Many lucky guests went home with wonderful treasures from our silent auction and raffle, like the Packers helmet signed by Jordy Nelson; a Harley Davidson sign with tickets to the annual Harley Davidson banquet; a Packers bracelet from Rummele’s Jewelers; an IPad; and a tailgate sound system, just to name a few.

We are grateful to the organizations and individuals who helped to make this special event possible:


Eagle – Oneida Nation
Wolf Pack – LaForce Inc.
Ranger – BayCare Clinic and Leonard & Finco
Busy Bug – Ecology Packaging and Konop Family Foundation

Our In-Kind Sponsors:
