Approximately 120 guests attended the event, which in addition to the trivia game itself, also featured a silent auction, raffle and 50/50 draw, all in support of the wildlife rehabilitation centre. Located in Mount Brydges, Salthaven is a volunteer wildlife rehabilitation centre that cares for all types of wild creatures including everything from turtles and snakes to beavers and birds of prey. Brian Salt is founder and director of rehabilitation at Salthaven. He said that this year alone, the facility will have admitted 1,000 wild birds and animals by year's end, and of those 650 will have been released back into the wild. Salt remarked that events like Saturday’s fundraiser were vitally important to the work that they do. “This year we admitted more animals and put more animals back into their natural habitat than we have ever done in our 25-year history,” said Salt. In 2011, the event raised approximately $4,000 for the centre and with the turnout on Saturday, organizers hope to better that total this year.
