Very Tired Sac Zoo Worker
As you can tell by the content of the last few blog posts, it has been all Wild Affair, all the time! We promise to get back to our regularly scheduled blogging, just as soon as we have caught up on some much needed sleep!
Over the course of five days, we took a bare patch of dirt and turned it into an elegant tented dinner and show room. We turned the Zoo into an outdoor cocktail lounge and entertained about 250 guests in fine style! But there is no rest for the wicked, as they say, so after leaving the Zoo after 11pm on Saturday night, we were all back at it bright and early 8:30 am on Sunday morning, looking very pretty (heavy on the sarcasm here), to tear it all down, put it all away, and clean it all up. Until next year, of course!
From first counts, we raised over $110,000 on Saturday, our most profitable Wild Affair ever! From animal keepers, maintenance, membership, education, to family and friends, everyone pitched in to make it a great success!
I am on my 12th day of work, a little bit loopy but very excited and proud of what we have accomplished! It’s amazing what you can do with a great team of people. Thanks to everyone who helped, everyone who donated and everyone who attended.
And now back to our regularly scheduled programming.
