Hi Crystal,

The party was a hit and my guests were extremely impressed with the location. They have asked me for pricing on rental but I’ve given them your number so they can call you guys directly. I’m sure you will get some business.

Once again thank you for everything and the staff was very helpful.

I plan on visiting again soon since my husband/ sons godmother didn’t go on the tour.

The small tiger was a great closing to our party.

August 24, 2014 Greetings!

We would like to give thanks and recognition to a few amazing people inside your organization: Melanie Figueroa and Andrea Ramirez. Our son, Noah Ruggiero (five years-old), was diagnosed with Leukemia a year ago. He is an inspiration to our family and is responding to treatment amazingly well. His one passion in life, well, in addition to making people smile and laugh, is animals. He doesn1t just like tigers and eagles. That would be too easy. Ask him his favorites and he will tell you they are the Red-Tailed Hawk, a Peregrine Falcon, the Cotton-Top Monkey, a Servilewe could go on, but we think you get the picture.

Recently, we were invited to visit your zoo, free of charge, thanks to Melanie, one of your volunteers. Andrea and Melanie gave us the tour, and we couldn1t have been happier. Due to our financial situation since Noah1s diagnosis, this trip would never have been possible without Melanie1s help, and your organizations commitment to spreading happiness and knowledge. Noah1s Make-A-Wish is to meet the Wild Kratts (A PBS animal show) and have one-on-one time with his favorite animals. He and his sister, Alessandra have been patiently waiting for nearly 8-months, and this was a welcome diversion and prep to meet the Kratt brothers.

You are all amazing, and we would like to extend our heartfelt thanks and express our gratitude. Please keep doing what you are doing, and one day, Noah might just be working with you!

With sincere appreciation,
Sabrina, Peter, Alessandra and Noah Ruggiero
