Philanthropy can be difficult when in person benefits and charity functions are out of the question. But thanks to the internet, anything is possible!

Join Civic Duty Partners for “Win For Wildlife,” an online auction benefiting The Raptor Trust and The Conserve Wildlife Foundation of New Jersey. Bidding will run from September 19 – 26, and features prints and original art by renowned painter, James Fiorentino.

Know worldwide for his stunning portraits of sports figures, James Fiorentino is considered to be one of the best watercolorists working in the United States today. Able to capture his subjects with incredible depth and detail, it was an honor for Conserve Wildlife to partner with the painter for “Rare Wildlife Revealed,” an exhibition containing original portraits New Jersey’s endangered wildlife.

Original paintings from “Rare Wildlife Revealed,” signed prints of sports figures & wildlife, and even a baseball signed by Mike Piazza will all be up for auction at “Win For Wildlife.” All proceeds will go towards supporting CWF’s ongoing work to preserve New Jersey’s Wildlife, as well as The Raptor Trust, one of the country’s best rehabilitators of wild birds and raptors. Based out of New Jersey’s own Great Swamp National Wildlife Refuge, The Raptor Trust is home to an avian hospital and a collection of unreleasable resident birds.

We hope you can come out (online, of course!) and support Civic Duty Partners, The Raptor Trust, and The Conserve Wildlife Foundation of New Jersey.
