TASTE OF THE WILD - A Celebration of Animals and an Evening of Food, Wine & Fun!
Held annually, "Taste of the Wild" is the sanctuary's largest fundraising event of the year. The 2017 installment will be taking place on Sunday, October 1, from 2:00 pm - 6:00 pm, and celebrate all kinds of great fun, food, entertainment, and of course, animals! Our theme this year is "The 1970s", which should be a lot of fun with the decorations and various types of entertainment we incorporate! Already, we have some really great ideas in mind - this is an event you won't want to miss!
Along with fun theme ideas we come up with, you'll also see: restaurants, wineries and breweries from all over Arizona offering tastings from their menus; live music and different types of entertainment (casino tables, jukebox, pinball machines, etc.); a silent auction and raffle with amazing destination and entertainment packages; and behind-the-scenes visits and special presentations with some of your favorite animals!
As we're a 501(c)(3) organization that receives no city, state, or federal funding, the proceeds from this fundraiser directly support the animals and education programs at Heritage Park Zoological Sanctuary; providing food, triage supplies, and housing needs not only to the animals we have on grounds, but also the hundreds more we'll see come through our gates in need of our help.
Thanks to everyone who attended and helped with the 2016 event. It was a great success! We raised a lot of money for the animals and everyone seemed to have a great time. We're looking forward to even greater success in 2017, but we can't do it without you! Purchase your tickets today to ensure the continued care of these amazing animals.
