Naples Zoo and KC’s Parrot 41 Bar & Grill Partner for “Pints for Parrots” to Save World’s Largest Macaw
The Parrot is back and still helping their namesake bird! Created by Patrick Daly, one of the original owners of The Parrot Bar and Grill, KC’s Parrot 41 Bar and Grill carries on the tradition at its new location on east US 41 across from the Collier County Courthouse. Naples Zoo is excited to partner with them again for the third Pints for Parrots event on Saturday, August 20, 2022 from 3 pm to 7 pm. This fun event benefits The Hyacinth Macaw Project in Brazil to help the world’s largest macaw which has faced increased threats from wildfires. KC’s Parrot will be donating $1 of every pint of beer sold and $2 of every custom blue cocktail. There will also be raffle prizes, a 50/50 raffle, and T-shirts and koozies to help these rare parrots.
“These extraordinary macaws especially need our help now - more than when we had our first Pints for Parrots,” explains Naples Zoo Director of Conservation Tim Tetzlaff. “After a time of seeing growing macaw numbers, recent wildfires consumed over a quarter of the Brazilian Pantanal where most hyacinths live, meaning a likely return to endangered status.” 100% of funds raised will benefit The Hyacinth Macaw Project and Dr. Neiva Guedes’ work in the Pantanal including their collaborative work on cattle ranches which provide significant habitat.
Daly’s new venture is dedicated to his late wife Karen whose nickname in high school was K.C. “Her favorite local charity was the Naples Zoo,” shared Daly. “That combined with her love of animals makes this the perfect event. So please come down and have pint for parrots.” By just having a drink or buying raffle tickets, guests can help save these bright blue macaws. Along with helping these macaws, KCs Parrot 41 Bar and Grill offers a welcoming atmosphere for the hard-working people of Naples to relax after a day at work or the beach – or a quick lunch break. Located at 3340 Tamiami Trail E in Naples. www.kcsparrot41naples.com
