STE. GENEVIEVE, MO, December 7, 2023On December 14th, 15th and 16th, Crown Ridge Tiger Sanctuary combines holiday fun and fundraising for their 6th annual Holiday Lights event.  On December 14th – 16th from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m., the public can meet a tiger keeper, learn about our rescued big cats, and watch Shakira, Sebastian, Izzy, Thor, and Gracie after dark under the holiday lights.  The activities continue with a hot chocolate bar, sugar cookie decorating, holiday crafts for the kids and a photo op with Santa!  One hundred percent of the proceeds received from this event go back to the sanctuary for care of the rescued animals.

“We love doing this event because it is one of the only times where people get to see what our tigers do after dark, and in the wild that is when they would be most active.” John Madigan, Operations Manager, said about this big event.  “The best part being all proceeds go back to taking care of the big cats that call this sanctuary home!”

Tickets can be purchased at the door for $10/person, kids three and under are free.

Operating as a true sanctuary since 2004, Crown Ridge Tiger Sanctuary does not buy, sell, breed, or trade any of its animals. Crown Ridge is a 501(c)(3) non-profit, Global Federation of Animal Sanctuary (GFAS) verified, big cat rescue and educational facility seeking to inspire a change to end the captive wildlife crisis and to provide a healthy, caring environment for unwanted wild cats.

Other ways of support:

Outside of the Holiday Lights Tours, the public may see and learn about the tigers and their needs during general tours operating Thursday through Sunday at 11:00 a.m., 1:00 p.m., and 3:00 p.m.  Early bird tours, VIP tours, educational tours, and tours on Monday through Wednesday require reservations.  These programs support the running of the facility and the big cats’ needs.  Additional ways of support include the adopt-a-cat program, meat donations, and direct monetary donations.
