Zoo invites you to Go Wild
September 24, 2013
The Cougar Mountain Zoo presents its biggest fundraiser of the year, the Go Wild Gala.
This adults’ only event starts at 6:30 p.m. Sept. 28 at the Hilton Garden Inn, 1800 N.W. Gilman Blvd.
Past galas have raised funds with specific animal themes, such as the tiger exhibit. This year’s theme is Go Wild, which will benefit overall zoo animal enrichment and zoo expansion.
The gala features a silent auction with unique donations, including:
- an African photo safari for six days and six nights in Southern Maputaland,
- a Swarovski crystal African wild boar,
- a test drive of the Tesla Model S for nine, followed by appetizers at Re:Public,
- a luxury, seven-night trip for two to Machu Picchu, Peru,
- a gourmet five-course dinner for four at Tosoni’s Restaurant,
- a seven-day Alaskan cruise for two,
- a behind the scenes tiger adventure at Cougar Mountain Zoo,
- and much more.
Donations for silent auction items are still being accepted. Learn more about making a donation at http://cougarmountainzoo.org/event/procurement.
Tickets to the gala are $125, which includes door gifts (featuring Theo chocolate and dance lessons) and can be purchased at http://cougarmountainzoo.org/event/go-wild-gala.
