Fundraiser set up to help the Great Plains Zoo

July 15, 2013 by  

The Jungle Jubilee, which will take place in Sioux City this August, is a fundraiser for the Great Plains Zoo and the Delbridge Museum of Natural History. All proceeds from the event will go to support the organization.

The zoo is located on 45 acres of land and is home to approximately 1,000 animals. The Museum of Natural History has over 150 mounted animals on display, 38 of which are endangered species. Proceeds from the Jungle Jubilee will go to animal care, public education, community outreach, special exhibits, and the purchase of new animals.

The event will feature musical entertainment, live auctions, silent auctions, food, and plenty of wine. Items up for auction, which will be donated by local businesses and community organizations, will include art, gift baskets, travel packages, and spa services. Guests are encouraged to dress in safari attire.

The Jungle Jubilee will be an excellent opportunity for the public and the business community to show support for this important Sioux Falls facility. Local printing companies will likely be providing the organizers with items such as tickets or invitations to facilitate the smooth running of the event. They might also be providing products such as banners, posters, brochures, and flyers to help advertise the fundraiser throughout the Sioux City community.

The Jungle Jubilee will take place at the Great Plains Zoo on August 8 from 5:30 pm – 10:00 pm. Tickets are $50 each. For more information about the event, or to donate an auction item, call 605-367-8313 x121.
