Cheers, animal lovers! The Evelyn Alexander Wildlife Rescue Center of the Hamptons will bring untamed excitement to the island this season with its GET WILD Summer Gala, chaired by Beth Ostrosky Stern, Christopher Obetz and Ellen Scarborough. On Saturday, August 11, 2012, the gala will celebrate the rehabilitation and successful release of Long Island's native wildlife.
