THE PARKS AT CHEHAW, GA (WALB) - A big crowd Thursday night at the Parks at Chehaw.

The Friends of Chehaw held its annual "Walk on the Wild Side" fundraiser.  More than 100 people attended and enjoyed food and a zoo tour.  There was a silent auction and live entertainment.

"We have 800 acres available to come out and see animals and do whatever you want, within a mile of the city limits is phenomenal," said Friends of Chehaw President Phil Franklin.

All the money raised will go to care for the animals.  This was the fifth time they've held the event.

Chehaw park is also getting ready for "Boo at the Zoo" later this month.
