Sturgeon Bay, Wis. (October 2, 2020) – The owners of The Spoon have a history with Open Door Bird Sanctuary and they are bringing their past support and interest into the present with a fun afternoon collaboration right at The Spoon in Sturgeon Bay, Wisconsin. The Spoon owner Tony Sikora started his relationship with Open Door through Culvers and is now bringing his partner Karen Wannemaker into the fold. Their interest in giving back and continuing support of Open Door led to this collaboration and they and are excited to be able to get the ODBS birds out in front of people again this year.
As a result, Saturday October 3rd will be an “ODBS and You” fundraising day at The Spoon and from 1-5 you can meet up with some of the majestic raptor residents found at the sanctuary and help raise money toward completion of a new forever home for 4 birds of prey.
Have you ever wished you could see that owl hooting in the distance? Or identify that big pair of wings flying high in the sky? Now is your chance! Make the most of it by coming in for lunch or dunner and try some of the great new menu items they have introduced. A percentage of the sales will be donated to Open Door.
Proceeds will be used to fund a new aviary, which is also receiving financial support from the Green Bay Packer Foundation and a similar meet n greet at WI Cheese Masters in August. It will be home to four avian residents including, Rockie, a Peregrine Falcon, who arrived late in 2019. “We are always on the lookout for new birds to share with our visitors and other centers view us as a very high-quality home so we are often approached to take birds as well,” says Seefeldt. “The residents of the other 3 spaces have not yet been determined and could be some of the current birds or future arrivals. The Spoon (thespoondoorcounty.com) is a local, family owned and operated business offering a wide variety of lunch and dinner items along with frozen treats. Located in downtown Sturgeon Bay, the restaurant is open 7 days/week.
