Local Love Orlando hosts fundraising event for Second Chance Wildlife Sanctuary

Sylvester the peacock woke the owner, Jim Bronzo, during the fire. In ancient Persia and Babylonia peacocks were seen as special guardians.

A fire destroyed the Second Chance Wildlife Sanctuary (Website) in the middle of the night, killing 31 of the 300+ animals that the owner had on the property. Including three of his four dogs.

In response, a number of local businesses and organizations have held fundraisers to help rebuild, including an upcoming event this Sunday, February 17 at Tactical Brewing which is hosting an event from 1-5 p.m. at their Baldwin Park microbrewery, located at 4882 New Broad Street [GMap].

Local Love Orlando will be hosting their own event on Monday, February 25 at The Abbey in South Eola featuring a new backdrop for their infamous photo booths, available throughout the event.

Prints will also be available for purchase with all proceeds going towards a fund to rebuild the animal sanctuary.

The space has been donated by The Abbey and food is provided by Maxine’s on Shine. There will also be a silent auction and a raffle.

Entry is a suggested $25 at the door.
