Gooseneck Hill Waterfowl Sanctuary trying to recoup damages from snowstorm

Posted at 11:58 AM, Apr 20, 2018

Gooseneck Hill Waterfowl Sanctuary, the worlds largest covered aviary, announced they will be holding a fundraiser on April 22 to help recoup the $70,000 in damages from a March snowstorm.

Heavy wet snow that fell on March 2 caused damage to the nets that cover the aviary and downed supports and trees.

The lower ponds have been restored but the upper pond remains unusable and repairs could cost up to $70,000, so the sanctuary is looking for the community's support.

Officials say they will hold their annual fundraiser "Taste Of The Southtowns" Sunday, with all proceeds going toward their recovery from the snowstorm.

The fundraiser will feature a Chinese auction, silent auction, seven local restaurants with over 40 different items and live music from the "Rustic Ramblers."
