Sponsorship and Underwriting
Thank you for considering supporting a special fundraising event for the Evansville Zoological Society to benefit Evansville’s Mesker Park Zoo & Botanic Garden. Private donations are very important to helping us advance our mission to connect people to the natural world. It is our mission to foster the preservation of the Earth’s diverse species and living systems through an active role in education and conservation in our regional and professional community. We forge connections between people and the natural world by providing quality experiences that promote understanding and celebrate the rich tapestry of life.
Building on the Zoo’s tremendous annual success and reach with our brand, we are embarking a new adventure by hosting our first annual premier wine auction event, “Vintage Vines,” featuring selections of fine and rare wine, this elegant, black-tie-optional event will include both live and silent auctions. Auction lots will include many non-wine items such as unique gift packages, superb dinners, lavish get-aways, fine jewelry, original art, sports memorabilia, behind-the-scenes tours at the Zoo and more! Guests will enjoy a multi-course gourmet dinner paired with exquisite wines and entertainment.
All of the proceeds from this incredible event will help to fund the Zoo’s new capital project, Penguins of Patagonia.
