Join us at South Street City Oven and Grill at Pine Ridge in Naples on Saturday, June 10 from 5:30 to 8 pm to celebrate World Giraffe Day. South Street is donating $2 from every draft beer sold to giraffe conservation efforts through Naples Zoo and even more when you order a "Reticulated Wreck" cocktail and custom pint glass featuring the four giraffe at Naples Zoo. There will also be a Pick-A-Prize Giraffle and online auction.
100% of what Naples Zoo receives from all these efforts are dedicated to efforts to help giraffes in the wild through Giraffe Conservation Foundation. Naples Zoo fully funds the annual salary of GCF's Conservation Health Coordinator Dr Sara Ferguson and Naples Zoo's Director of Conservation serves on the GCF Board of Directors.
Plus this year, you can order custom World Giraffe Day shirts and gear of your choice with two designs featuring two of Naples Zoo's giraffe: Bolo and Jumanji. Lots of t-shirts styles for men and women and plenty of color choices. Plus get a sticker for your water bottle - or get a water bottle! Mousepads. Hats. Phone cases. Tote bags. More! Check out the two links below for each design.
