BILLINGS - ZooMontana is hosting one of the largest fundraising events in years.
"A Wild Affair," ZooMontana's fundraiser, is expected to attract about 300 people and the zoo's executive director, Jeff Ewelt, hopes to raise around $90,000.
Ewelt expects the event to be a great one and the proceeds should help expand education outreach and improve existing exhibits.
"We want "A Wild Affair" to be the party of the year. What we're looking to do is have a very nice elegant event where you enjoy a great dinner, some good auctions, and the great thing is all proceeds are going to go back to the zoo," said Ewelt.
A wild affair starts at 5:30 pm Friday night at the Northern Hotel. The event includes a cocktail hour, dinner, auctions, and live entertainment. Tickets are $89 and advance reservations are recommended.
