Each year, avian enthusiasts gather in Barnegat, New Jersey, to engage in comradery, enrichment, and education.

On Saturday, October 17th, The Platinum Parrot is sponsoring Winged Wisdom & Health Symposium 2015. The event is a gathering to enjoy dinner at a local restaurant, lectures by Dr. Irene Pepperberg and Dr. Brynn McCleery, and a silent charity auction to benefit The Alex Foundation.

Dr. McCleery, ABVP, will be giving a talk entitled, “An update on PDD: What we know now and what to expect in the future.” Dr. Pepperberg will discuss Griffin and Athena and her work at Harvard University.

Tickets are $45. Approximately 50 attendees are expected, and reservations to attend in person are required. The organizers will prepare goodie bags with information (cards, pamphlets, and literature) for each attendee.

Can’t make it to New Jersey? That’s okay! For supporters who can’t attend in person, a live video stream will be accessible online in return for a donation.

This year’s dinner menu is a choice of the following:

Chicken Francaise
Roast Beef Au Jus
Herb-Encrusted Grouper
Penne Vodka
Veggie & Potatoes
Parfait Dessert

A cash bar will be available for attendees over 21.
