Exotic Escapades

Lions Tigers & Bears(LTB) took place on Saturday, October 16th for the San Diego chapter of the American Association of Zoo Keepers and Lions Tigers & Bears "Exotic Escapades"!

While it drizzled by the coast, it was a beautiful sunny day in the mountains and a wonderful time was had by all. The fundraiser began with a VIP reception which featured the opportunity to interact with caretakers, wine and beer tastings, a sampling of fine cuisine and a sneek peak at our auction items. Guests arrived at 1pm and were entertained with an animal presentation from the San Diego Zoo and flamenco dancers.

The live auction featured a variety of items including 2 paper mache pigs. The pigs were filled with treats and the winning bidder was able to place the item inside the habitat of either Conga, the leopard or Liberty, the black bear and then stand outside to watch them enjoy their new toy.

SDAAZK and Lions Tigers & Bears would like to thank everyone who helped make this fundraiser a success for both of our organizations! We hope to see many more of you next year!
