The N.E.W. Zoological Society along with the Wisconsin Restaurant Association (WRA) hosted the 16th annual “Feast with the Beasts” event, presented by Capital Credit Union, on Monday, August 3rd. The SOLD OUT event was a huge success! The weather was beautiful and our zoo animal friends were out and active. We are confident in saying none of our 1200 plus guests left hungry and most were carrying a dish of custard or fruit for the ride home. We would like to congratulate Legends for taking the title of “Best of the Feast 2015”. Thank you to all the wonderful volunteers, zoo staff, participating vendors, sponsors, & those that purchased a ticket. All proceeds from the event will support the missions of the Society & the WRA-Green Bay Chapter. We will post pictures of the event in the coming weeks.

3rd Annual “Skunks are Beautiful” Cribbage Tournament Wrap Up
Our 3rd annual “Skunks are Beautiful” Cribbage tournament was a huge success! The event held on Thursday, April 9th was SOLD OUT days before the event. There were 70 teams in the Ski Lodge at the NEW Zoo and the place was hopping! We were up approximately 30 teams from the prior year and we doubled our proceeds. At this time we would normally show you a picture of the event and everyone having fun. The person responsible for the picture taking was so caught up in the event happenings she failed to take any pictures. I know who I am so there is no need to share my name. Instead here are pictures of the wonderful people & zoo staff that helped set up, serve food, sell raffle tickets, clean up, & everything else that made this event successful. Thank you to more wonderful people (not shown below) Mary Jo Nash, Mark Soderlund, Dean Tackmier, & Steve Krawczyk.
Look for 4th annual tournament information next Spring!
