A WILD AFFAIR
Friends of Lee Richardson Zoo are going to have ‘more fun than a barrel of monkeys’ during the wildest night at the zoo. “A Wild Affair” will take place on Saturday September 6, 2014. Lee Richardson Zoo will be closed during regular hours September 6 to prepare for the festivities. The evening features live music from “Tim Anthony & The Anamals,” along with live and silent auctions. Adult beverages will be served while local restaurants and caterers provide a delicious “taste of Southwest Kansas.” The event takes place under the stars in the Wild Asia exhibit. Doors open at 6 p.m. at the Finnup Center for Conservation Education, located at 312 Finnup Drive. Food is served until 8 p.m. Tickets are $40 during early bird sales and must be purchased in advance as they will not be available at the door. Tickets purchased on or after September 1 are $50. Guests must be 21 to enter.
FLOCK A FRIEND!
Oh no, a flock of plastic flamings are roosting in your yard! They've surely migrated from the nearest zoo...
This is a fundraiser for the Friends of Lee Richardson Zoo. A yard ‘flocking’ includes an invasion of approximately 50 plastic yard flamingos stacked at the residence of your choice (in Finney County). The ‘victim’ of the flamingo flock will also receive a family or grandparent membership for their household. Flamingos are guaranteed to vacate a given premises in 48 hours after landing. Birds may be removed sooner upon request. Perfect gift for birthdays or just for fun!
