TASTE OF THE WILD - A Celebration of Animals and an Evening of Food, Wine & Fun!

2016 TOW LogoHeld annually, "Taste of the Wild" is the sanctuary's largest fundraising event of the year. The 2016 installment celebrated all kinds of great fun, food, entertainment, and of course, animals! The theme was "Route 66", which was a huge hit with everyone who attended. It featured all things 1950's and 60's, from music and entertainment to cars and food! With vintage road signs and decorations we truly were transported back to that iconic era. Cruising down old Route 66, stopping at kitschy hole-in-the-wall attractions - there are just some of the nostalgic feelings we elicited with the event.

Along with fun theme ideas we come up with, every year, restaurants, wineries and breweries from all over Arizona offer tastings from their menus; live music (the 2016 band was Sky Daddy & the Pop Rocks) and different types of entertainment (2016 featured a movie area, casino tables, a jukebox & dancing area, etc.); a silent auction and raffle with truly amazing items; 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 already looking forward to next year!

The 2017 installment of this event will take place on Sunday, October 1. Please continue to check back for details and ticket availability - we will update the site with new information as it becomes available.
