It’s that time of year again- time to head out to Sky Bar at 536 N. 4th Avenue from 7-10 pm Saturday, April 14th for the second annual Birds, Blues and Bellydance Benefit for Wildlife Rehabilitation Northwest Tucson!

Citan the Harris Hawk

See Luna the Great Horned Owl, Citan the Harris Hawk, and the ever-adorable Elfie the Elf Owl from 7:30-8:30 pm. Enjoy danceable, funky blues by The Railbirdz and smoking-hot bellydance performances by Troupe HipNautic and their backing band, The Permanent Floating Riot Club. 100% of the $7 donation at the door, plus 15% of sales at Sky Bar and Brooklyn Pizza Company go toward the rehab. We had a blast last year and raised $1010 for this entirely self-supported rehabilitation center that treats and releases hundreds of birds and small mammals. I’d love if we could double it this year!

I feel lucky to count myself among the dozens of dedicated volunteers that help 80-year old Janet Miller run the facility. Janet has encyclopedic knowledge and unending patience and spends thousands of dollars from her own pocket to run the only rehabilitation center on this side of town. So come on out and have a pizza and a beer and support this wonderful cause!
