THE CAUSE
Why do they need your help?

WinosforWildlife-1The current rhino and elephant poaching crisis has steadily escalated to truly alarming rates throughout Africa and Asia. This is due to the illegal use of rhino horn in traditional Chinese medicines and ivory tusks that are illegally smuggled to China, Thailand and Vietnam to make chop-sticks, jewelry, ornaments, hair accessories, and many other decorative items.
The sanctuaries that benefit from “Winos for Wildlife” protect these charismatic mega fauna, as well as hoofstock, small mammals, countless rare and endangered birds, reptiles, insects and even coral reefs, as well as support strong community development through literacy, hunger, health, women’s business and water conservation projects.
How will “Winos for Wildlife” funds be used?

Funds raised the night of the event are combined with a national effort called “Bowling for Rhinos” and are used to support the Lewa Wildlife Conservancy in Kenya, Ujung Kulon National Park in Java, Indonesia and Bukit Barisan Selatan National Park and Way Kambas in Sumatra. These sanctuaries not only save rhinos and elephants but also protect entire ecosystems! Funds are sent through Lewa USA, the International Rhino Foundation and Action for Cheetahs in Kenya to support top priority needs in wildlife conservation.
WinosforWildlife-2Ian Craig, a renowned conservationist who helped found the Lewa Conservancy, described this current emergency as “an unfolding disaster for Africa”. In response to this global crisis, we simply must do something to help. Funds raised will be used to fence in and protect these precious areas, purchase planes and vehicles to curtail poaching, trans-locate wildlife into sanctuaries & parks, purchase cameras for censusing, for salaries for anti-poaching security guards, provide patrol stations/equipment and training of park guards in anti-poaching skills. Winos for Wildlife also supports strong community development. The local people who live in these regions benefit through supported schools and literacy programs, water projects, women’s business programs and health clinics just to name a few. With this support, we can help conserve wildlife and their ecosystems worldwide, fueling the war against poaching!
PHOTOGRAPHY/ART EXHIBITION & AUCTION
We will be featuring more than 20 pieces of wildlife art and photography by artists and photographers from all over the country who have been impacted and inspired by the beauty that exists throughout these endangered ecosystems. These rare and priceless works will include both amateur and professional pieces.
$75/person prior to October 15th, $85/person at the door.
For more Zoo information, please call (801) 584-1700.

Jewish Arts Festival: An Evening with Steve Katz @ I.J. & Jeanne Wagner Jewish Community Center

Jewish Arts Festival: An Evening with Steve Katz @ I.J. & Jeanne Wagner Jewish Community Center |  |  |

Best known as the guitarist from the 60’s and 70’s band, Blood Sweat and Tears, Steve Katz came into the music world during a very influential period of Rock and Roll. Steve was a pioneer of the blues-rock genre with his early band, The Blues Project and went on to produce several best-selling albums for Lou Reed in the 70’s. Katz will offer a chronological retrospective of his career in both story and song – all infused with a humor that only a New York Jewish ex-rock star can bring to the table. Dinner and dessert will be provided.
