TASTE OF THE WILD - A Celebration of Animals and an Evening of Food, Wine & Fun!
"Taste of the Wild" is our largest fundraiser of the year, and we have so many great things planned this year's event! Held every fall at Heritage Park Zoological Sanctuary, the celebration features all kinds of great fun, food and entertainment! This year's theme is "Route 66", so we're going for all things 1950's. Be transported back to that era with vintage road signs and decorations; recall family road trips cruising down old Route 66; stopping at kitschy hole-in-the-wall attractions along the way. This year we'll have restaurants, wineries and breweries from all over Arizona offering tastings from their menus; live music (Karmann & Kompany headlines; while two other musicians flank the corners of the park - and yes, Elvis will be in the building!); tons of great entertainment (vintage movie area, gambling tables, a jukebox and dancing area, and more); a silent auction with some really amazing items (click here for a detailed listing); and behind-the-scenes visits and special presentations of some of our favorite animals! We'll even have a free parking shuttle for guests provided by Prescott's own Classic Taxi - a perfect fit for this year's theme!!
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.
