The last weekend of April 2013 was a big weekend for Wildlife SOS. The Team was in the Los Angeles area following talks presented in the Midwest. The two fundraising events were held on our behalf to raise money for our animal ambassadors, as we are trying to provide new homes for leopards and elephants.
First, we received a very warm reception at the new Animal Advocacy Museum which houses a phenomenal art collection dedicated to animal welfare and rights issues. The event hosted by Georgia Umano, a board member of the museum was held at the Pasadena venue on Friday the 27th. In attendance were the museum’s founders, Patty Shenkar and Prabhat Gautam. Patty donated the art, which is showcased in the galleries of the museum. The second event was held the following evening at the private home of actress producer Julie Lott Gallo and her husband Producer George Gallo in their Hollywood Hills home. The event was attended by several entertainment industry professionals. At both functions Kartick presented our conservation work on bears, elephants and big cats through rescue and rehabilitation. Both events were well attended and lots of awareness was generated for protecting and conserving wildlife in India.
