TASTE OF THE WILD - A Celebration of Animals and an Evening of Food, Wine & Fun!
"Taste of the Wild" is our largest fundraising event of the year, and we're already gearing up for the 2016 installment! Held every fall at Heritage Park Zoological Sanctuary, the event features restaurants, wineries and breweries from all over Arizona offering tastings from their menus; entertainment and live music, a silent auction, and behind-the-scenes visits and special presentations of some of our 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.
This year's TASTE OF THE WILD event will be held on Sunday, October 9, 2016, from 2:00 pm to 6:00 pm. Below is a recap from last year's happenings - we can't wait to share all that we have in store for this year's event. If you thought last year was a good time, wait until you see some of the exciting things we have planned for 2016!
