A Heartfelt Thank You for Making Safari Nights a Success!

2023 Fundraiser Artwork

We extend our deepest appreciation to each and every one of you who joined us at Safari Nights, our momentous celebration of Safari West's 30th anniversary and the Safari West Wildlife Foundation's 25th anniversary. With over 275 guests in attendance, together we raised an incredible $127,000.

These funds are more than just numbers; they're the lifeblood of programs that impact young lives. From Safari West LIVE, which brings the magic of our wildlife preserve to hospitalized children, to the Discover Africa Scholarship Program that opens doors to learning for underserved students, and the Junior Keeper Program, offering budding wildlife enthusiasts a path to conservation education – your generosity makes it all possible.

We'd also like to express our deep gratitude to our sponsors, supporters, Peter and Nancy Lang, the Foundation's Board of Directors, and the Safari West team. Your unwavering dedication and belief in our mission are the driving forces behind our success.

With your support, Safari West with the programming presented by the Foundation, continues to be a beacon of wildlife education, conservation, and inspiration. Together, we're forging a brighter future, where both wildlife and children thrive. Thank you for being part of this incredible journey and for helping us make a lasting impact.
