Dine For Wildlife, Not On It

The South Florida Wildlife Center is hosting "Hero Night," a "friend-raising" event at DIG Restaurant in Delray Beach, from 5:30 to 8 p.m. Thursday. Dine on vegan appetizers and sip conscientious cocktails while you mingle with fellow animal lovers and learn all about the many adorable -- and not so adorable -- wild animals the center helps. The South Florida Wildlife Center is an affiliate of the Humane Society of the United States. Admission to "Hero Night" is $35 in advance or $40 at the door. Visit biddingforgood.com/sfwc to buy tickets. Two drinks and vegan tapas will be served to each ticket holder. A raffle will also be held. DIG Restaurant is located at 777 E. Atlantic Ave. in Delray Beach. The South Florida Wildlife Center is located at 3200 SW Fourth Ave. in Fort Lauderdale. Call 954-524-4302, ext. 30 or ext. 52.

KEEP NEW TIMES BROWARD-PALM BEACH FREE... Since we started New Times Broward-Palm Beach, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of South Florida, and we'd like to keep it that way. With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.
Rebecca McBane is the arts and culture/food editor for New Times Broward-Palm Beach. She began her journalism career at the Sun Sentinel's community newspaper offshoot, Forum Publishing Group, where she worked as the editorial assistant and wrote monthly features as well as the weekly library and literature column, "Shelf Life." After a brief stint bumming around London's East End (for no conceivable reason, according to her poor mother), she returned to real life and South Florida to start at New Times as the editorial assistant in 2009. A native Floridian, Rebecca avoids the sun and beach at all costs and can most often be found in a well-air-conditioned space with the glow of a laptop on her face.
