WILMINGTON — A very “chill” fundraising party is planned at the Brandywine Zoo called, Lemurs & Lagers, to be held on Friday, Sept. 17 from 5 to 8 p.m.
Guests will stroll about the zoo and be mesmerized by the active lemurs at the new Madagascar Habitat, witness special animal presentations, enjoy music, food, drinks and fun activities.
The event will benefit the Delaware Zoological Society, the non-profit responsible for all programming, events, educational programs onsite and offsite, as well as business operations and fundraising to support the Brandywine Zoo. Guests’ price of admission and participation in a cash 50-50 ticket raffle at the event will help support the mission.
Party goers will enjoy live acoustic reggae music by Spokey Speaky with additional entertainment by 93.7 WSTW. Expect amazing up close avian encounters with Animal Behavior and Conservation Connections, zookeeper animal talks, and creature features. Kids will love the art activities offered by Delaware Contemporary and play at other fun stations throughout the zoo.
Lagers will be served by sponsor Bellefonte Brewing Company with contributing sponsor, Dogfish Head Brewery and Midnight Oil Brewing. Cider and mead by Liquid Alchemy Beverages and mixed drinks offered by other vendors. Two drinks are included in admission fee. More may be purchased. Food will be available for sale at the event from local restaurants Del Pez, Santa Fe & Kid Shelleens. The Society strongly supports local businesses. Ice cream free for all provided by Hy-Point.
