June 20 of this year, on the summer solstice, the Detroit Zoo had their gala "Sunset at the Zoo" fund raiser for their benefactors and supporters. The Zoo stayed open into the late hours and it was certainly a great event and lots of fun. Lots of major and regular sponsors, lots of food and beverage tents, live music from the great Jerry Ross Band, an intro by the anchors at channel 2, A live auction with phenomenal items to bid on, a silent auction, a sunset keys event, and frogs everywhere since this was the year of the frog. Everything was donated by all the generous sponsors of the zoo. We donated out photographic services so that they could have images for their marketing and we donated a "Portrait Session at the Zoo" to the silent auction. We even have a banner there all the time with one of our images from the event dining area.We really believe the zoo is such a great cause and deserves our full support. We sincerely appreciate their great referrals and give them any images they need for their sales and marketing. We make up one of the hand outs they give to their potential wedding clients at the zoo - part of the "Say I do - at the Zoo" add campaign. This helps us both in promotion.
We were truly honored to be a part of this and really enjoyed the evening.
