Wild Impressions: Andean Bear Bash!
Thursday, August 8, 2013 from 6:30 PM to 9:30 PM (CDT)
Join us this summer as we host Wild Impressions: Andean Bear Bash our annual social event and fundraiser featuring wine and beer bar, food, music, and the unique opportunity to purchase and bid on artwork created by Nashville Zoo's animals. In a continuing effort to help protect endangered animals, the Nashville Chapter of the American Association of Zookeepers (AAZK) will be donating the proceeds of this event to the Andean Bear Foundation (ABF). Conservation of these bears is a timely issue for Nashville Zoo as we will be breaking ground on our first bear exhibit in 2014! Andean Bear Bash is sponsored and made possible by The Nashville Smile Team. Additional sponsorship provided by Jerry's Artarama Nashville and Urbane Residential Specialists LLC. Alcoholic beverages are donated by Lipman Brothers. A special 'Thank You' to all the framers who have donated framing for the pieces that will be auctioned off at the event!
