A Night of Lemur Delight
We hosted our 2017 benefit gala, A Night of Lemur Delight, on Thursday, December 14, at Michael’s On East, Sarasota. We are so grateful to our guests for helping to advance LCF’s urgent mission to prevent lemurs, among the most endangered mammal groups in the world, from becoming extinct. We wish to express our gratitude to Elizabeth Moore, Honorary Chair, Dr. George Amato, Master of Ceremonies, Distinguished Guest Speaker Dr. Ian Tattersall, singer-songwriter Razia Said, accompanied by Harvey Wirht, and ABC Team 7 award-winning meteorologist John Scalzi, Paddle Raise Emcee. Special thanks to Trulee Jameson, Art Source Studio, and Spotlight Graphics. It was a fabulous evening, and we’re grateful for this wonderful coverage:
With over 50 lemurs living at the Lemur Conservation Foundation’s reserve in Myakka City, Florida, there’s always news about one or more leaping, climbing, calling or roughhousing in their protected forests and shelters. We invite you to learn more about our vital work in Florida and Madagascar to save lemurs from extinction.
