Wildside brought out in a Parks at Chehaw fundraiser

October 13, 2007

Dougherty County -- South Georgians got a chance Saturday night to experience the Parks at Chehaw in a unique, wild way and all for a good cause.

During "Walk on the Wildside" visitors walked through the Wild Animal Park during the evening hours. They were also able to get a closer look at several "Birds of paradise."

Several restaurants set up shop with samples of their cuisines, all to the tune of several musicians.

"It's so unique because we have the zoo, we have a wonderful zoo. And to see the zoo in the evening when its quiet and the animals are active, the weather is cool. It's too late for tonight, but in the future if people see this kind of event I think they will want to come out here," said Executive Director, Doug Porter.

The evening concluded with a catered dinner. All the proceeds from Saturday nights event will go toward the park.
