Lew Rees of Courier Cares shows his gratitude to Chuck and Terry Baldok, who donated $150 to Heritage Park Zoological Sanctuary during the “Lew Loves the Zoo” event Monday, March 4, 2019.
Before moving to Prescott, the Baldoks were members of the San Diego Zoo and they love animals. During the “Lew Loves the Zoo” fundraising event, Rees is scheduled to complete various tasks around the zoo, and on Monday, he manned the gift shop.
The fundraiser “Lew Loves the Zoo” takes place March 3-7, raising $9,514.71 on day two Monday for a grand total of $18,071.84 so far. On Tuesday, he will be a “Keeper for the Day,” shadowing a zookeeper and learning what they do to care for animals.
