SANIBEL, Fla. — The Clinic for the Rehabilitation of Wildlife or CROW is hosting a fundraiser to help provide care for bald eagles and wildlife.

Those who want to help can win a 24 "x36" one-of-kind, original painting of Ozzie soaring over Sanibel generously donated by locally based and nationally-known artist Myra Roberts.

The drawing will be held on September 29th at 2 pm. CROW will contact the winner directly.

The raffle is limited to one entry per person and is $100 per entry. Only 250 entries will be sold, and all funds raised will directly benefit CROW's mission.

The painting is currently on display at Bank of the Islands located at the corner of Periwinkle Way and Casa Ybel Road.

"This year has been quite a challenge for so many nonprofits, and CROW is no exception. We were forced to cancel two of our fundraisers, Southern Comfort in April and our golf tournament in October, but our patient numbers in the hospital have actually increased," says Alison Charney Hussey, executive director for CROW. "Proceeds from this raffle of Myra's painting will actually be life saving funds to our local wildlife. We hope to completely sell out of tickets."
