Born Free - a special fundraiser
I am SO excited to announce our very first real life fundraiser! Together with Event Cinemas and Animal Works, we're presenting a very special screening of the 1966 classic, Born Free. I don't know about you, but its one of my all time favourite movies.
"what happens when you raise a wild animal with love and then have to train it to kill"...
Based on Joy Adamson's book, this moving true story filmed entirely on location in the savage jungle of Africa tells the story of how Joy and her game-warden husband George Adamson raised an orphaned lion cub as their own. Unwilling to send their beloved lioness Elsa to a zoo, they decide to teach her how to hunt and survive in the wild.
Join us, along with our good friend Ace Bourke of Christian the Lion fame, at Event Cinemas in Sydney, on Saturday 18th April 2015 at 3.30pm, to raise money for the king of the jungle, the mighty lion!
100% of the profits from the screening will go to The Global White Lion Protection Trust in South Africa.
Each movie ticket includes a free show bag and raffle ticket for our lucky door prizes - a chance to win a framed original lion drawing by Nafisa AND a chance to win a ticket to the upcoming Kevin Richardson talk in Sydney - which will be drawn at the end of the movie.
We here at The Feline Foundation look forward to seeing you and your friends, family and colleagues. It will be a wonderful afternoon and funds raised will greatly assist us with our African lion conservation goals.
