More Good Deeds to Consider

The United Way is making it fun and easy for you to lend a hand to help the community this year.
Between October 26 and November 2, you can help build a healthy community simply by taking part in one or more of the following United Way Week activities. For more details on United Way Week, visit http://www.stl.unitedway.org/unitedwayweek.aspx.

The St. Louis Zoo needs volunteers for 2 Major Upcoming Events.

1. Zootini 2008 Stayin’ Alive presented by Macy’s is on Saturday, November 15, in The Living World Building. This sell-out Young Zoo Friends fundraiser features live entertainment, hors d'oeuvres, and themed cocktails.
This is a MUST BE THERE Fete Event. If you're not able to swing the ticket price, consider volunteering so you can check out the Best, Most fun event of Autumn for FREE!
Volunteers are needed for the 6 p.m. – 12 Midnight shift to assist with greeting, registration, bar-backing, and more.

2. U.S. Bank Wild Lights is the Zoo’s evening holiday event where guests can walk through the Zoo's holiday wonderland of spectacular light displays and go nose-to-beak with the birds at Penguin & Puffin Coast .
The event dates are weekends November 28 – 30, December 5 – 7, 12 – 14, and nightly December 19 – 23 and 26 – 30.
Volunteers are needed each night during the 5 – 9 p.m. shift to assist with the event.

More information on these events is available on the Zoo’s website: http://www.stlzoo.org/events/calendarofevents/index.php?mo=11&yr=2008.
