A ROARing Thank You!

On Monday evening the community got a chance to journey inside the theatrical wonder of Disney’s The Lion King at ROAR: A 10th Anniversary Safari Event. Attendees were treated to a behind-the-scenes look at The Lion King's Pride Rock, puppets, masks and musical instruments. The event also featured a Survival of the Fittest live auction and Pick a Paw poster sale with proceeds benefiting the Center's mission-based activities. 

Thank you to all who purchased tickets to support the Center's 10th Anniversary fundraising event and a special thanks to Disney, The Lion King cast and crew and the community for making this event a ROARing success!
