Auction: Philadelphia Zoo Tour

We were fortunate enough to meet Mr. Vik Dewan a few weeks ago. Mr. Dewan is the President and CEO of the Philadelphia Zoo.  During our visit I mentioned Arden’s website to Mr. Dewan and he was kind enough to offer to help us raise money for the JDRF.  I explained how we were able to raise $500 by auctioning the Donovan McNabb Football and asked him if he had something similar to donate.

I just received the auction item and it’s something I can vouch for personally.  You are definitely going to want to bid on this amazing and rare treat!

The auction winner will receive Free Admission for up to four people, a Personal Behind-The-Scenes Tour of the Zoo and a Channel 6 ZooBalloon Ride.

The Philadelphia Zoo is even more amazing when you see it from the zoo keepers viewpoint.  Take it from me, you haven’t seen a tiger until you’ve stood just two feet outside of his cage!
