Kalamazoo Girl Raises $5,000 to Bring Lions to Binder Park Zoo
Don't mind if I zoo.
My girlfriend Suzannah absolutely LOVES going to Binder Park Zoo in Battle Creek. Don't get me wrong — I do too. But nearly to the level she does. So, this is exciting news. Let's start at the beginning.
Last year, Binder Park Zoo announced its $3 million "Lions, Tortoises and Bears...Oh My!" campaign. The part of this that excites me most? Bringing lions to the 433-acre zoo.
With that being said, I think we just found someone who loves the zoo even more than my girlfriend. Meet 11-year-old Yasmin Pirbhai. According to MLive, Pirbhai raised $5,000 to be donated to the new Lions exhibit. $5,000! That pushes the fundraising to 75 percent of its goal.
Bring on the lions!
