Gators on the Green to benefit Blank Park Zoo
On Monday, May 20, thirty foursomes are set to tee off at Blank Park Zoo’s second annual Gators on the Green Golf Tournament, held at the Wakonda Club. As the host of the 2013 Principal Charity Classic May 28-June 2, the Wakonda Club is giving the Zoo’s golfers their chance to play the course just a week before the pros.
From securing golfers to sponsorships to silent auction items, the Blank Park Zoo Ambassadors have worked hard to make this fundraising event a successful one. The ambassadors are a group of professionals dedicated to supporting the zoo. They strive to fundraise and plan zoo events, participate in volunteer projects, network and socialize with other like-minded professionals and promote the zoo’s mission.
The participation of the golfers and supporting organizations in Gators on the Green helps the Zoo further our work to inspire an appreciation of the natural world. We are thankful for the support of everyone involved!
The day includes lunch, mulligans, games, contests, prizes and post-game hors d’oeuvres. And, there will be special animal appearances including camels, a donkey – and of course, gators!
