Brew at the Zoo gives patrons look at Giraffe Education Center
— Those who attended Brew at the Zoo at Plumpton Park Zoo Saturday got a rare look at the new Giraffe Education Center.
Cheryl Lacovara, director of the zoo on Telegraph Road, said rain moved the annual fundraiser under cover. Picnic tables were set up on the floor of what will be-
come the new home of Jimmie the giraffe next month. Once Jimmie moves in only zoo staff will be allowed on that level, Lacovara said.
The annual fundraiser for the 21-and-over crowd included a buffet dinner, beer and wine, and a souvenir mug. Appropriately, this year marked Jimmie’s 21st birthday. Local bands Bowling for Karma and Fishing for Hippies entertained attendees.
Fishing For Hippies provided music at Plumpton Park Zoo’s Brew at the Zoo Saturday night.
Supporters of Plumpton Park Zoo got a rare look at the area that Jimmie the giraffe will call home soon when rain moved Brew at the Zoo under cover.
