Liquor Group & Happy Rum Sponsor the St. Augustine Wild Reserve

St Augustine, FL – November 8, 2010 - The St. Augustine Wild Reserve is a non-profit corporation that has been saving the lives of abused and neglected exotic animals for more than a decade.  The Founder of the Reserve, Deborah Warrick, has worked with exotic animals all of her life, having received extensive training at the Los Angeles Zoo among other specialized wildlife training and education.  The goal of the Reserve is to educate the public about exotic animal ownership, to prevent future animal abuse, and all of the animals at the Reserve have been saved from euthanasia.

This years’ annual fundraiser featured a few furry friends from the Reserve, including Mango a Bush Baby (left), and Concho, a Coati Mundi (right), as well as original art of animals cared for at the Reserve.  More than 100 VIP guests were in attendance at the lovely waterfront setting in St. Augustine. 

The Reserve is open twice a week for tours, and it hosts a wide variety of exotic and domestic animals, including: Lions, Tigers, Wolves, Leopards, Mountain Lions, Patagonian Cavy, Deer, Prevost Squirrels, Servals,  Bobcats, Coatimundi, Carical, Syberian Lynx, Goats, Geese, Chickens, Hedghogs, Ball Pythons, Black Vultures and even American Alligators!         

Products exclusively featured from the Liquor Group portfolio at the entire event included: Russian Ice Vodka, Rhythm Citrus Liqueur, Fat Ass Tequila, Old St. Andrews Scotch, and Happy Rum.
