Here in the Bismarck Mandan communities we have many different organizations that put on fundraisers.  Throughout the summer we have had fundraisers for the rescue organizations and for other non profits.

This coming Saturday, September 18th is another fun event at the Dakota Zoo.  It is a wine tasting at the zoo.  As they call it "Its for the Animals Wine Tasting".  It is a unique way to bring people together for a good time while raising money for the zoo.

The Dakota Zoo has had many different events that raise money that helps with the day to day operating expenses.  There are a lot of animals to house and feed and care for, not to mention keeping the exhibits in good condition.  The zoo hosts events throughout the year that are fun for everyone.  It just so happens, the zoo held it's Breakfast at the Zoo this morning.

I read a Dakota Zoo Facebook post about the snow leopard cubs.  They are getting bigger and more brave and they are exploring the world outside their den, under the watchful eyes of mama, of course.  Here is your chance to see them before they grow up, you know little ones, animal or human grow fast.

So plan for the fun event this Saturday.  It will be an evening of wine samples, wine appropriate charcuterie and live music.

LOOK: Stunning animal photos from around the world

From grazing Tibetan antelope to migrating monarch butterflies, these 50 photos of wildlife around the world capture the staggering grace of the animal kingdom. The forthcoming gallery runs sequentially from air to land to water, and focuses on birds, land mammals, aquatic life, and insects as they work in pairs or groups, or sometimes all on their own.
