Rare animal interactions, exclusive afterhours access and excellent food were just some of the many perks for those who attended the Cincinnati Zoo’s, ‘Toast to the Wild’ series. Animal lovers from around the city were seeking a truly unique and immersive wildlife experience, and these events provided just that. The sold-out series was wildly successful; and we here at Paycor were honored to be this year’s premier sponsor.
Great Events for a Great Cause
The events – Cocktails for Conservation, Zoo Brew and two Wild About Wine events – aren’t just about having fun, they are platforms for raising critical funding for the Lindner Center for Conservation and Research for Endangered Wildlife (CREW). Through advanced animal research and internationally recognized programs, CREW is leading the way to secure a positive future for endangered species.
With support from businesses and individuals alike, CREW has been able to achieve things such as unraveling the mysteries of breeding Sumatran Rhinos, a species with fewer than 80 individuals left on the planet. The Cincinnati Zoo has many conservation efforts and without the Toast to the Wild series, many projects and programs would go unfunded.
Paycor believes in making a difference in the workplace and in our local communities. So, when we received the opportunity to support one of our clients, while also raising funds for threatened species such as polar bears, cheetahs and tigers, we went all in.
With over 4,500 attendees, the series raised an outstanding $215,000 – that’s a $40,000 increase from last year!
Paycor is proud to have been the presenting sponsor for the Toast of the Wild Series and we look forward to continuing our support of the Cincinnati Zoo. For nearly 30 years, Paycor has been dedicated to supporting local communities, charities and the unique needs of businesses.
