Free Flight ‘Tropical Sunset Fundraiser’

Free Flight, Del Mar’s one-of-a kind exotic bird sanctuary, held its fifth annual Tropical Sunset Fundraiser on Oct. 11. Dagmar Midcap, from NBC Channel 7, served as emcee of the event in support of Free Flight’s mission to maintain a sanctuary to care for orphaned parrots and promote avian education.

The event also featured unique silent auction items, an opportunity drawing, dinner, cocktails, beer and wine, and live music performed by Jerry McCann and the Blues Birds of Happiness.
