Last spring Tantus hosted an anniversary golf tournament, which included various fundraising activities with proceeds going to the Zebra Child Protection Centre. This year we had an opportunity to continue our support of Zebra and the critical work they do to ensure children in our communities are safe.
Tantus was pleased to provide corporate sponsorship for ZooFest, a major annual fundraiser for Zebra. In addition, Tantus contributed a silent auction item and purchased tickets for staff to attend the event. ZooFest took place June 17, 2017 at the Edmonton Valley Zoo and Tantus staff enjoyed the family friendly event – including unlimited access to the zoo, food, drinks and both a live and silent auction.
Prior to Zoofest, a few Tantus staff also had the opportunity to tour the new Zebra Centre space and find out more about the services they offer and their needs.
As a result, Tantus staff have been gathering up toys, toiletries and other gifts over the month of June to fill up Zebra’s toy closet. Every child involved with Zebra chooses a gift from the toy closet and Zebra also provides backpacks, clothing and toiletries to kids as needed.
As an Edmonton-based company, Tantus is committed to investing in the communities we live and work in. ZooFest was an excellent event and the Zebra Centre is a very worthy cause. We look forward to supporting Zebra more in the future!
