The 3nd annual “Sip & Safari” event, a fundraiser to benefit Chehaw’s Wild Animal Park, is sponsored by Heritage Investment Center, Proctor and Gamble, and Watson Spence. The event will take place within Chehaw’s new safari exhibit, Saturday, Feb. 25, 2011 from 5 p.m. till 10 p.m., with cocktails, dinner and dancing.
“The event being held at Chehaw is a change from previous years, but we believe guests will be impressed with our new exhibit and will enjoy the change of scenery from Fowler Farm,” says Doug Porter, executive director of Chehaw. “We’ve appreciated the generosity of the Fowlers for allowing us to hold this event on their property in the past, but this year it’s time for Chehaw to show off its newest gem.”
Chehaw is excited about this year’s Sip & Safari event and the unique experience guests and patrons of this special event will have within the new safari exhibit.
Featuring one of only two zoos in Georgia accredited by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA), Chehaw also includes a BMX bicycle race track, 18-hole disc golf course, Wild Trail for walkers and runners and one of the largest playgrounds in the state. Chehaw hosts special events throughout the year, like the Native American Cultural Festival in the spring, Swamp Stomp Summer Camps in the summer and Festival of Lights during the holidays.
