The Elegance of Elephants: An Afternoon Safari Soiree

the elegance of elephants: an afternoon safari soireeThe Elegance of Elephants: An Afternoon Safari Soiree is the first production of our new sponsorship with  Save The Elephants.  Relentless poaching is threatening Africa’s elephants as their lives are taken for their tusks. Last year more than 30,000 elephants were illegally poached. This equates to one elephant every twenty minutes.  Save The Elephants relies on donations from individuals and foundations to fund its work to secure a future for elephants.

On Sunday, May 17th, renowned artist Bellamy Murphy will host this very important fundraiser at her Isle of Hope home.  This is the first time Bellamy has opened her home for such an event, so you can understand how important your passion and support is to our cause.  Many supporters, conservationists and philanthropists have joined together to produce this inaugural afternoon safari soiree.
