LITTLE ROCK, Ark. – The possibility of wind and rain on Saturday caused organizers of a fundraiser for the Little Rock Zoo to announce a slight change in plans.
Saturday’s “Wild Wines” event is changing location, moving to the Robinson Center in downtown Little Rock. According to officials from the Little Rock Zoo and the Zoological Foundation of Arkansas, the “Mane” event will take place at the Grant Still Ballroom in the Robinson Auditorium.
Animal ambassadors will always be on hand to greet guests, with wine provided by O’Looney’s Wine.
“We are thrilled to welcome Wild Wines to one of the most amazing locations in Little Rock with one of the best views of the Arkansas River,” said zoo director Susan Altrui.
The Friday night VIP wine event will still take place at the Zoo and is sold out.
“Wild Wines is synonymous with great food, great wine and great entertainment that customers have come to love over the years and that tradition will continue despite the challenge of the weather.” Altrui continued.
Tickets for the Saturday night event are still available online for a limited time at the zoo website.
Proceeds from Wild Wines benefit the Zoological Foundation of Arkansas for the Little Rock Zoo.
