Sure, sure, they're "way out there" (cause of suburban sprawl) and easy to forget about, but here's a tasty way that YOU can help.
Reserve your seat for the Gourmet For The Glades dinner at Ortanique On The Mile. $65 gets you a three-course meal, a glass of wine, and covers tax and tip. 50% of the proceeds generated go directly to Friends Of The Everglades and their efforts to protect what's left, make sure politicians know the long-term effects of their environmental decisions, and spread public awareness of the importance and existence of the Everglades.
To paraphrase the Wu Tang Clan's Raekwon The Chef, "Cindy Hutson will be cooking up some marvelous shit." Make sure to reserve your seat by Tuesday, June 2 or you'll miss out when the plates hit the table on June 4.
