Presented by Anadarko, Tickets on Sale for Event Scheduled for June 15
Denver Zoo is proud to announce that Trish and Ken Green will chair its largest annual fundraiser, Do At The Zoo, set for June 15, from 7 to 10 p.m. Presented by Anadarko, tickets for the 28th annual soirée are on sale now at denverzoo.org!
Lifelong animal lovers, the Greens have been Zoo members since moving to Denver in 2005. They also have a long-time love of horses, living in Cherry Hills Village with their two quarter horses that have now retired from the show circuit. Trish showed and bred five world champions in the American Quarter Horse Association (AQHA), while Ken still enjoys riding cutting horses. The Greens are partners in a feed manufacturing business and a commodity logistics company, with locations throughout the high plains, and are also involved in an 11-bank holding company in Colorado, Wyoming, and Nebraska.
“One of our main goals is to see what we can do to secure the future of Denver Zoo-- to enable children everywhere to see and learn about animals that they may never get a chance to see otherwise,” said Trish Green. “We are thrilled to bring our support to the Zoo as chairs of this important fundraising event.”
Trish Green has also been involved in fundraising for the University of Nebraska and many political issues. The Greens have been married for almost 48 years, have two adult children, and five grandchildren.
Do At The Zoo, presented by Anadarko, offers savory sample dishes from more than 55 of the city’s best restaurants and breweries. All of the region’s party animals can belly up to the watering hole for unlimited drinks, featuring the region’s best beers, wines and cocktails. Guests will also enjoy live music, dancing, and close-up animal encounters in the incomparable setting of Denver Zoo at twilight. Tickets are $175 each and corporate sponsorships are available, beginning at $7,500.
Over the course of its 27-year history, more than 50,000 Do At The Zoo guests and sponsors have raised more than $12.1 million to advance the mission of Denver Zoo: to secure a better world for animals through human understanding. Proceeds from the event support everything we “do at the Zoo,” including the care and feeding of more than 4,000 animals, representing more than 600 species, as well as protecting wild animals and wild places in the Rocky Mountain West and around the world, and to creating awe-inspiring moments for more than 2 million annual visitors.
Tickets are on sale now at www.denverzoo.org/doatthezoo. Denver Zoo will close at noon on June 15 to set up for the event.
