13th annual Zoobilee coming at RDC

It's a party for the animals during the 13th Annual Zoobilee event at the Riverside Discovery Center (RDC). The annual fundraiser will be held Saturday, July 20, from 6 to 10 p.m. at the zoo for those over 21 years of age. All proceeds will benefit the RDC. The zoo will be closed all day on Saturday, July 20, so staff can set up for the event.

This year Soul Sacrifice, a Santana Tribute Band sponsored by NationStar Mortgage and U.S. Bank, will perform burning renditions of Latin-infused rock classics. The event will also include a Mexican buffet with shredded beef soft tacos, and all the fixings prepared by The Meat Shoppe, and a cash bar.

Along with the music and food, there will be several raffles with over $10,000 worth of prizes for people to win. Some of the prizes include Wyoming football tickets, a guided goose or duck hunt and shotgun, a one-hour helicopter tour of the valley provided by the Aulick family, Rockies tickets provided by Regional West Medical Center, a Traeger Grill provided by Carr-Trumbull Lumber and Nebraska Transport Company, an overnight in Deadwood provided by KNEB, and numerous gift certificates to area businesses.

In a special raffle, the RDC is doing a Wild Adventure Getaway with a $3,500 travel voucher through Diana Deeds Travel. Only 100 tickets will be sold in this special drawing and tickets are $100 each. The Wild Adventure tickets may be purchased ahead of time at the RDC gift shop or from any board member.

Tickets for the 13th Annual Zoobilee are $40 for RDC members, $50 for non-members and may be purchased at Platte Valley Bank or the RDC gift shop. You must be 21 to enter the event, and advanced ticket sales only. For more information, please call the RDC at 630-6236.
