I serve on the board of trustees of the Phoenix Zoo, and I want to tell you about a way Phoenix-area residents can help the zoo this weekend.
Borders is sponsoring a Benefit Days event this Saturday and Sunday, Dec. 11-12, to help raise money for the zoo. Just click on the link below, and you’ll see a coupon you can print out to take with you to Borders. Present the coupon when you make your purchases, and the zoo will receive a portion of the proceeds. You can do some of your holiday shopping and help a good cause at the same time.
This is an exciting time for the zoo. We’re about 75 percent of the way toward our goal of raising $20 million for our capital campaign. You’re seeing exciting new exhibits such as the Komodo dragons. Next spring, we’ll be opening a greatly expanded orangutan exhibit. A new Sumatran tiger exhibit is on the horizon.
If you haven’t been to the zoo lately, you should pay a visit. A lot of work has been done to freshen up the grounds and buildings. And if you’re a fan of ZooLights, you’ll find it to be bigger and better than ever.
Thanks for considering this request. To get your coupon, just click on this link: Phoenix Zoo Borders Coupon
