Reno set to go wild

September 11, 2012 by  

The Reno Animal Ark Wildlife Sanctuary presents the annual ‘Out of Africa’ event at the end of the month. Proceeds from this fundraiser will support Action for Cheetahs in Kenya, as well as the sanctuary.

Located about 20 minutes north of Downtown Reno, the non-profit 38-acre wildlife sanctuary is home to approximately 30 free-roaming wolves, bears, and cheetahs, all of which are considered non-releasable.

Visitors will have the opportunity to meet Tango – a cheetah from the Project Survival’s Cat Haven. Special guest speakers Cosmas Wambua and Mary Wykstra , both of Action for Cheetahs in Kenya, will be discussing cheetahs in the wild and the existing plight they are facing.

A dinner in tents will be served under the stars, while Animal Ark cheetahs named Moyo, Jamar, and Zulu will entertain the audience, running at lightening speeds through the cheetah field.

Non-profit entities organizing events of this type often call upon printing companies to assist with required printing needs, such as flyer and banner printing. Flyers are an economical way to advertise the event as they are easily distributed and can be divided up amongst many sources to hand out. Banners are used to easily attract attention to locations, special functions, vendor booths and performances.

Due to take place on September 29 from 2:00 pm – 6:00 pm, tickets are now on sale for the Animal Ark Wildlife Sanctuary Fundraiser. Special ‘Game Drive’ tickets are also available, which include the event along with a tour of the Animal Ark provided by founders Aaron and Diana Hiibel.
