Eagle Rare Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey has named Edward E. Clark, Jr. of Waynesboro, Virginia, as the grand prize winner of the 2012 Rare Life Award. Eagle Rare will donate $20,000 to the Wildlife Center of Virginia, where Clark is president and co-founder, in his honor.
The Wildlife Center of Virginia, founded in an empty barn in 1982, was originally established to care for local wildlife. In just 30 years, the Center has grown into one of the world’s leading teaching and research hospitals for wildlife and conservation medicine. Over the years, the Center has cared for more than 60,000 injured or orphaned animals, reached millions of people with its educational programs, and trained students and professionals from veterinary schools in the United States, Canada, and more than 40 other countries.
