Melbourne, FL, Feb. 14, 2014 – Artemis, the Space Coast’s leading IT Services provider, will be the Title Sponsor of Brevard Zoo’s annual gala, Safari under the Stars. The fundraising event takes place on Saturday, April 26, 2014.

The incredible support from sponsorships, a live auction, a grand raffle and other activities during the night of the event shows how much the community appreciates the Brevard Zoo.

Brevard ZooThis year the Zoo will be celebrating its 20th birthday at the gala. In honor of this birthday milestone, the Zoo is opening a new major exhibit featuring meerkats. It is the Zoo’s vision to bring back the community-wide excitement and engagement that defined the original creation of Brevard Zoo so it can harness that energy to power the next 20 years of the Zoo’s growth. The official birthday celebration weekend will be held March 15th and 16th.

The not-for-profit Zoo continues to be a vibrant, first-class venue that provides enjoyment, enrichment, education, recreation and economic support for the entire county through the dedicated support of the community. Unlike the vast majority of Zoos, Brevard Zoo does not receive any public funds for operations, so events like Safari Under the Stars are critical to ensuring its future.

We’re honored to support the Safari under the Stars gala and welcome all who want to see the Zoo grow to attend,” said Travis Proctor, Artemis CEO. “Join us February 15-17th as Artemis is the special sponsor of the Zoo, this Valentine’s Day weekend.

About Brevard Zoo
Brevard Zoo serves to conserve wildlife through education and participation. The Zoo which opened in March 1994, started from a small band of dedicated people who raised $3.5 million dollars and recruited more than 16,000 volunteers, making it the largest community Zoo build ever undertaken, anywhere.

With each new habitat built, community volunteers have generously donated their time and money. The continued success of the Zoo depends on financial contributions from many sources. Funding from private donors, grass roots education and conservation organizations, local, state and federal government – as well as continued support from the Tourist Development Council – are vital to the Zoo’s future.
