Wild Affair is our gala fundraising event that happens in October (the 4th to be exact) and includes behind-the-scenes tours, live and silent auctions, gourmet dinner and much more!
So, why are we talking about it in May?
Well, we have been working on it since February, the excitement is growing with the staff and we just thought we would share!
The silent auction is halfway full, and I spent a lovely afternoon driving around the foothills picking up a very nice assortment of donated wines from Camino, Fair Play and Plymouth. Next on the list is Napa and Sonoma. You probably guessed by now, we will have some great wine in the silent auction, including Silver Oak Cabernet and six different Jeroboam (3.0L) bottles.
The night will be themed around frogs, with the proceeds going to the Tall Wonders giraffe exhibit renovation, and Dave Bender will host the evening and live auction.
Keep an eye out - we will be building a webpage for Wild Affair soon, the save-the-date postcards are going out and there will be a booth and raffle at King of Feasts.
Mark your calendar for Saturday, October 4th, and check out the slideshow below for some highlights from last years fun!
