LACONIA — Pub Mania team Bag O'Loot bring's animal education to Laconia as a fundraiser for the Pub Mania event, Children's Auction and Food Pantry. Pub Mania, which raised $165,300 for the Children's Auction last year, is once again working to exceed that number for 2013.
"While we call Pub Mania a 24-hour challenge, it is really much more, not only bringing everyone in the community together to work toward a common goal, but, its people helping people" explains team captain Melissa M Bigler. "We've set the bar quite high for ourselves, and all the teams are stepping-up and getting very creative in their fundraising. Wildlife Encounter will bring an amazing wildlife display to Levitt Park in Laconia and as a wildlife enthusiast; I'm very excited to share fun and educational experience with the community".
In a 45 minute educational show, guests will be introduced to more than six animals, including the Fennec Fox. The session will be followed by a question & answer segment, and will also feature guest exhibitor Christina Hazelton of the Upper Valley Reptile Group. Adoptable animals will be available.
Showtime is 1-3 p.m. on Sunday, November 24, at Levitt Park on Elm Street in Laconia. Admission for adult is $10, and for children 14 and under is $5. A $1 discount applied to admission with donation of one or more non-perishable food item for the local food pantry.
