A passionate group of animal lovers, board members and zoo supporters — including Shelton residents — are launching an elegant evening affair, designed to raise money to support the Connecticut Beardsley Zoo’s endangered species and enhance habitats. The Gala Committee, co-chaired by Kathy MacGhee of Shelton and Cathy Fell of Fairfield, is planning an Endangered Species Gala to be held on Nov. 3, at The Patterson Club in Fairfield.
“This is the first evening Gala held for the Zoo in a long time,” said MacGhee, committee co-chair. “Connecticut’s Beardsley Zoo is home to important species protection work that we wanted to celebrate. Once you realize the steps that are being taken by our Zoo to help sustain the future of wildlife, it’s impossible not to want to help them continue their work.”
