A Note from Presenting Sponsors Dick and Marilyn Faris
Marilyn and I welcome you to the second annual Philadelphia Zoo-a-thon, in partnership with 6abc.
As longtime supporters of the Zoo, we believe deeply in its mission of connecting people with wildlife and we hope you will make a contribution in support of Philadelphia Zoo today. That’s why we are pleased to announce that we will match Zoo-a-thon contributions dollar for dollar up to $100,000. Every dollar you give will turn into $2 in support of the more than 1,700 animals that call Philadelphia Zoo home.
On the front lines of global conservation, the Zoo provides exceptional animal care, supports international environmental causes and works to save wildlife and habitats. Access to the Zoo offers a child the chance to see the magnificence of a tiger, and the awe of a gorilla, while learning about ecology and conservation. For many, a trip to the Zoo is the first and only time they can stroll through a beautiful garden, visit unique animals, and be inspired in a safe and engaging space.
We have been very fortunate and believe in giving back. We believe others should too. Supporting Philadelphia Zoo is an opportunity to make a difference for animals and people alike. Thank you for your consideration.
Dick and Marilyn Faris
