Tickets are on sale now for the annual Growl, Howl and Wine tasting event, a benefit for the Folsom City Zoo Sanctuary. The September 17 event features regional wineries, craft breweries, and local restaurants. Browse the selections and join the silent and live auction bidding for a variety of art, gift baskets, excursions, personal services, and the popular Wall of Wine. Live music by the Have Mercy band and visits with some of the Zoo Sanctuary's animal ambassadors add to the fun. (Note: this event is for ages 21+)
The Folsom Zoo Sanctuary provides a home for both native and exotic wild animals that have been orphaned, injured, or confiscated from unsafe and illegal situations. The Zoo Sanctuary also serves as an educational facility to teach responsible behavior toward all animals. Proceeds from the Growl, Howl and Wine event help provide the resources to feed and care for the animals and maintain the Zoo's outreach programs.
Individual tickets are $40 in advance and $45 at the door; reserved tables for eight are $450. Visit www.FolsomZooFriends.org/GHW for tickets and information.
