Event Features

  • Silent auction – over 30 items will be available for bidding!
  • Brunch buffet (vegan options) by Wesley’s Catering, and mimosas!
  • Blue, our ambassador Blue Jay, will be at the event for a meet and greet!
  • Special guest speaker: Ben Winger, PhD – Assistant Professor and Curator of Birds at the University of Michigan Dept. of Ecology & Evolutionary Biology and Museum of Zoology.

Instead of having an evening event like we’ve had in the past, this year we are having a brunch and our theme is a baby shower!

We will have our annual variety of beautiful donations to bid on during our silent auction, and we will also have a wonderful catered brunch buffet with mimosas.

We will also be accepting donations from our Amazon Wishlist at the door, as we are starting to collect items off our “baby registry” for the 2020 season.

Mark your calendars for this fun Spring event! We hope you’ll join us at Flyaway X!
