Event Benefits Lions, Tigers & Bears


October 2, 2009 (Descanso) – For a wild night on the town, dine and visit with exotic big cats at Saturday night’s Between the Stripes fundraiser at Lions, Tigers & Bears big cat rescue facility in Descanso. Dubbed “The Mane Event,” the party runs from 2 to 6 p.m., with a VIP reception at 1 p.m. Advance ticket purchases required. Festivities include a silent auction, opportunity drawing, plus activities for children including face painting and jumpies.


“Insurance is one of Lions Tigers & Bears' biggest annual costs and it's time to renew,” says owner Bobbi Brinks, adding that funds are also needed to purchase an industrial-sized cooler to store meat for the growing number of animals housed at the facility. “Insurance coverage is vital to the safety and protection of all our animals, and it allows our supporters to enjoy events, like Between the Stripes, at Lions Tigers & Bears' facilities surrounded by these gorgeous, rescued cats. Help us raise the $66,000 needed to complete these projects!”


Tickets cost $90 for adults and $25 for kids. VIP tickets are $125. Discounts available for full tables. For tickets or information, call (619) 659-8078 or visit
