Previously the RBFC honored Richard's interest in and dedication to the protection and preservation of the environment by supporting the National Audubon Society (NAS), donating in excess of $6,000 to that organization in the name of Richard Burgi by the end of 1999. With the start of a new year, the RBFC has decided to support an organization more in tune with Richard's interest in grass-roots work -- the Orange County Bird of Prey Center (OCBPC).

A recently-held (April 6-9) RBFC online charity auction raised $1,972 for the OCBPC and a charity raffle,  drawn April 30th, added $1,240  for a combined total of  $3,212 donated to the Center. (To learn more about the auction and the raffle, visit the RBFC auction and raffle pages).

While Richard greatly appreciates the thoughtfulness and generosity of his fans, he finds gifts a bit overwhelming. He would prefer -- and would be honored -- if instead, fans make a donation in his name to the Orange County Bird of Prey Center or a similar organization in their home town.

What is the Orange County Bird of Prey Center?  To help us learn more about the organization, the OCBPC sent us an informative and interesting brochure, the text of which is presented below.
