Thursday, June 26, 2014
6:00pm to 10:30pm
TICKETS STILL AVAILABLE!
Join us for a unique evening at the Toronto Zoo where you will raise your glass in support of the critically endangered rhino.
Tickets to this special night, only $70 each*, will include appetizers, wine tastings, a silent auction, a special Zoomobile tour to our Indian and White Rhino Exhibits as well as a Meet The Keeper Experience. We will also be holding a live auction where one lucky person will get the chance to have a one-on-one close encounter with the rhinos that evening! Proceeds from the event will support The Lewa Wildlife Conservancy, located in Kenya, which protects many different species including 73 black rhinos and 61 white rhinos.
This engaging and educational evening will provide participants with a unique opportunity to learn the nuances of wine flavours with four different wines, as well as learning how you can help save and protect rhinos. Fortessa Canada is the proud glassware provider for the Raise Your Glass For Rhinos event. Four Schott Zwiesel glasses, which are lead free Tritan crystal glassware stems, will be featured during the event. You will be able to take the glassware from the event home with you, courtesy of Fortessa Canada. The host, Michael Pinkus, will explain how the shape of the glass can enhance the taste of the wine. It's the perfect evening to spend with friends, family or colleagues all while supporting rhino conservation.
As a leader of conservation, the Toronto Zoo, Canada's premier Zoo, is committed to helping spread the message on preserving our natural world. The Raise Your Glass For Rhinos is the main fundraising event of the Toronto Zoo's Chapter of the American Association of Zookeepers (AAZK).
*Must be 19 years or older to attend. Does not include regular Zoo admission.

NEW addition to the Australasia Pavilion
What’s the size of a mouse, can travel twenty meters in a single bound, and eats as much as it weighs every day?
The answer is now on exhibit in the zoo's Australasia Pavilion: feathertail gliders! These pygmy marsupials have superb gliding abilities thanks to parachute-like flaps of skin between their legs. They're great climbers and fast runners, too, so you'll have to look closely to see the twelve gliders in their new exhibit!
