Palmer: Pepsi Grant Could Be An Asset to Zoo, Others

In this edition of Talk of the Town, The Telegram's Diane Elliott talks with Mary Palmer, executive director of the Friends of Lee Richardson Zoo about the Cat Canyon project and ongoing fundraising efforts. Cat Canyon will provide a new home to the zoo's big cats, and already the FOLRZ has raised more than $660,000, with about $250,000 left to go.
That's where a new grant opportunity comes in. It is the Pepsi Refresh Everything project, which would provide the funding for the rest of the project, and all it takes is votes. Lots of votes. To win the $250,000, the project has to have enough votes to push it to the top two spots in the contest. Now it sits at No. 32.
So how do you vote? You can go to the Pepsi Refresh Cat Canyon page
, vote using Facebook, or you can text 103330 to 73774. Voting continues until Oct. 31.
