Description:

Join us for this year's art auction, Art for the Amazon, on Friday, November 15, 2019 from 6 - 9 pm. Hosted by our Naples chapter of the American Association of Zoo Keepers, the art auction will raise money to help the animals affected by the fires in South America. 

Tickets are $30 and include dinner, one drink ticket, and one raffle ticket. Guests must be 21 and up to attend. There will be music, food, drinks, and many works of art painted by our very own animal artists. Most masterpieces, from our aesthetic armadillos to our zealous zebras, will be available in our silent auction section.

Purchase Tickets

All proceeds from the event will be donated to Panthera, a large and small cat conservation organization that is raising money to stop the spread of fires in the Amazon. "Right now, fires are burning dangerously close to critical wild cat habitats in South America such as Noel Kempff National Park in Bolivia. Already, we estimate that these fires have killed 500 jaguars in Brazil and Bolivia alone, and likely twice as many pumas and small cats." - Panthera 

If you have any questions, or would like to donate a work of art for the cause, please contact Jennifer Clavio, AAZK Naples Chapter President, via email at jclavio@napleszoo.org.
