SAVE THE GREAT AMERICAN WILDLIFE BENEFIT – HOSTED BY DENISE WOHL, ARDEN WOHL, AND TOM SACHS
August 20, 2011
South Hampton, NY
The first annual Endangered Species Coalition (ESC) Hamptons Benefit to take place on Saturday, August 20, 2011, 7pm-10pm hosted by Denise Wohl, Arden Wohl and Tom Sachs. The benefit will be taking place at Denise and
Arden’s family home in Southampton, New York.
This year, the ESC hopes to bring awareness to the East End of Long Island regarding the change of heart that has recently occurred in the Congress and how it may affect the current protection of endangered species and their habitats.
Earlier this month, The House introduced their appropriations bill for the Department of the Interior that would prevent Fish & Wildlife Service (FWS) from listing new species as threatened or endangered. The bill will also inhibit the FWS from designating critical habitats, including threatened and endangered Long Island species such as the Roseate Tern, Seabeach Amaranth and Northeastern Beach Tiger Beetle. The impact of this bill and weakening wildlife protections will be felt both across the nation and close to home.
Denise Wohl, Arden Wohl and Tom Sachs are looking forward to helping ESC’s endeavor to raise awareness and generate support for the continuing protection of threatened and endangered species and their habitats. In honor of the event, Tom Sachs will create a limited edition print and all attendees will receive a benefit t-shirt also designed by the artist.
Advance tickets are $200
After August 8 $250
VIP pre-party cocktail reception with benefit committee from 6pm-7pm $500
Since 1982, Endangered Species Coalition has worked to protect and restore wildlife and wild places. Through their network of hundreds of organizations, the ESC has launched a number of successful campaigns to defend the Endangered Species Act and the species it protects. As a non-profit and non-partisan organization, the ESC believes that grassroots power from American citizens is the strongest political force to compel decision makers to protect our species and their habitats.
