Dear WINC Friends,

We sincerely hope that you and your loved ones are in good health during this time of uncertainty.  Due to the health safety concerns in light of the COVID-19 virus, the Wildlife In Need Center (WINC) decided to cancel the event which had been scheduled for Saturday, April 25th.

We are so disappointed that we will not be able to celebrate “Caring for our Wisconsin Wildlife” in person and share our many success stories with you in person – BUT INSTEAD WE WILL BE COMING TO YOU LIVE!

WINC very much appreciates your support of our organization. If you purchased a ticket or a table you will be contacted by Debbie Verhalen to process a refund. Should you consider helping us by donating the amount of your banquet event ticket purchase, then the full amount would be a tax-deductible donation. We understand that this is a sensitive and challenging time for everyone and understand should you like to receive a full refund of your ticket purchase. If you would like to request a refund, we ask that you send your request to by Tuesday, April 7th, 2020.

We would also like to extend our gratitude to our loyal sponsors, listed below.  WINC’s ability to achieve its mission is dependent on their support as well. Thank you table sponsors:


Tom and Mary Roberts

Wayne and Kathy Grandy



As we continue to navigate through these unique and evolving daily challenges, we would like you to know that WINC will continue to financially support our staff, the wildlife currently in our care and our Educational Ambassadors. WINC staff continues to respond to phone messages, providing guidance on wildlife emergencies. WINC is a 501(c) 3 nonprofit organization that relies solely on the generosity of the communities we serve, grants, foundations and supporters, like you. The money that would have been raised through this banquet event would have generated a significant portion of the funds that help us provide care and treatment for 3,400 wildlife patients annually as well as wildlife education programming.

In lieu of holding the annual banquet, we will be hosting a “LIVE” event on April 25 with details forthcoming at a later date. If by chance you have the means to provide WINC with an additional donation, you may do so by clicking on the button below:

We are so very thankful for you and our family of supporters. It is because of your generosity that we are able to continue help provide the essential wildlife medical care and treatment along with quality wildlife education programs for our communities. We could not do this without you!

Be safe,

Kim Banach

Executive Director

We will update you in the coming weeks about our live event!
