Photo by Leslie Sutton Fundraiser collects money for sanctuary The Barry Kirshner Wildlife Sanctuary & Educational Center announces the winners of its fundraiser, held over two days at the Quincy Post Office and Quincy branch of Plumas Bank. The winner of the giant white tiger was Emma Ortiz (age 2), of Elk Grove. Helping her claim the first prize is her 5-year-old sister, Alexis. Grandpa Robert "Bubba" Pierson, of Quincy, bought the winning tickets. Macy Peay, of Quincy, claimed second place, winning the cuddly chimp, and Rick Foster, of Quincy, won the third-prize Bengal tiger. All ticketswere drawn by Cathy Williams at Plumas Bank. Thanks to the generosity and support of the community, the foundation gained $840. The Kirshner wildlife sanctuary is home to a remarkable variety of native, exotic and endangered animals. The majority of these animals have "special needs" -- health issues or other concerns that prevent their reintroduction into a natural environment. The facility is the only sanctuary of its kind in California. The sanctuary is located at 4995 Durham-Pentz Road, by Butte College. Visitors are welcome; admission is $10 for adults, $6 for children 15 years and under. The organization accepts donations via PayPal; to learn more visit kirshner.org.
