BATON ROUGE, La. (BRPROUD) — A Baton Rouge nonprofit is challenging the notion that zoo trips have to be tailored to children.
Friends of the Baton Rouge Zoo, a nonprofit that supports BREC’s Baton Rouge Zoo and its conservation efforts, has scheduled an event fitting for animal lovers and wine enthusiasts ages 21 and up.
The nonprofit plans to host “Wild Wine Walk” at the zoo on Friday, May 21 from 5 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.
For $50, participants can tour the zoo while sipping on a variety of wine and tasting food from local eateries, according to a press release from the zoo.
For $75, VIP participants can enjoy the evening stroll through the zoo while sampling wine and food, and they can also enter an hour early to receive exclusive rides on the zoo’s giraffe and zebra-themed shuttles. VIP guests will also receive an insulated wine tumbler.
Proceeds will benefit Friends of the Baton Rouge Zoo.
Tickets will go on sale Monday, April 12.
