Members Only Penguin Party

September 13, 2017 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm

penguin painting members only event

Waddle on over for this special members only after hours party! You’re invited to an exclusive sneak peek of how some of our penguin artwork is created. Watch as one of our African penguin ambassadors transforms plain white tiles from Get Fired Up! into unique and colorful masterpieces that will be used for this year’s Run/Walk for the Penguins race. Our penguin trainers will share why this fun activity is a great enrichment opportunity for our penguins and how this helps them to participate in their own healthcare.

Enjoy light snacks and fun music in the Main Gallery while you make a beaded bracelet just like those worn by every penguin in our colony! Each colored bead represents a different number, so make your bracelet represent a special date or just add a collection of your most favorite colors. Either way, you’ll become an honorary member of our penguin colony!

Be sure to stop by our Run/Walk for the Penguins table to learn more about our 11th annual race. Register as a runner or walker on the spot and find out how you can start fundraising for the event right away. Who knows, you could be one of the runners to win the awesome prizes made during the Members Only Penguin Party!

RSVP’s for Members Only Penguin Party are suggested, but not required. Please email [email protected] to learn more or to let us know you’ll be joining in the fun.
