The intimate evening will begin with a 4:00 pm departure from My Sister’s Closet Lincoln Village. Upon arrival and during the cocktail hour, guests will have the opportunity to take guided tours of Southwest Wildlife Conservation Center and see the resident Mexican gray wolves.

Cocktail hour and tours will be followed by a silent auction, sit-down dinner and presentation by Craig Miller, the Senior Southwest Representative at Defenders of Wildlife. The evening will conclude at approximately 6:30 pm when guests may board the private bus back to My Sister’s Closet.

Mingling mere feet from the wolves’ dens, guests attending Dinner with Wolves will be up close and personal with several Mexican gray wolves now living at the Southwest Wildlife Conservation Center, along with other animals including bears, mountain lions and leopards.

Dinner with Wolves will introduce guests to the predicament and majesty of the Mexican gray wolf, the most endangered gray wolf in the world.  At last count, there were less than 120 wild Mexican gray wolves in the entire world with only 50 living in Arizona. Guests will come to know how their support can save this extraordinary animal within our own state boundaries.

“We have a chance to save this wolf right here in Arizona and we have already raised more than $75,000 in the last several years towards the awareness about the Mexican gray wolf but we need more help,” said Ann Siner, title sponsor and CEO of My Sister’s Closet. “We have to be vigilant and continue raising awareness so people understand how terribly close this animal is to extinction.”

Presently there are 15 Mexican Gray Wolves living at the Southwest Wildlife Conservation Center. The community is invited to take advantage of this rare chance to see the wolves up close and attend Dinner With Wolves.

“These wolves are an iconic species of the Southwest and are on the brink of extinction. We need to educate ourselves about this endangered species, raise as much money as we can and join people like Ann Siner who are making real difference for our state’s imperiled wildlife,” said Linda Searles, executive director of Southwest Wildlife Conservation Center.

Only 100 seats are available for this intimate and rare Dinner with Wolves event so reserve your space now.  Individual tickets are $250.00 and can be purchased online or by calling 602.374.3906. Corporate sponsorship opportunities are also available. 100% of the proceeds will benefit Defenders of Wildlife and Arizona’s Southwest Wildlife Conservation Center.
