NEWPORT NEWS—The Virginia Living Museum is inviting members of the community to become Ambassadors for conservation, biodiversity, education, and nature through their Living Otter Ball: A Community Conservation Challenge, going on between now and Friday, May 30.
Interested parties can become an Ambassador in one of three ways:
- Join as an individual
- Form a team
- Join an established team
Every Ambassador or team member who raises $100 or more will be entered into a drawing to win Virginia Living Museum tickets. The three teams/individuals that raise the most money, as well as three randomly chosen teams/individuals, will be invited to the Museum for a private experience.
For those who do not wish to participate as an Ambassador but would still like to help, individuals can “adopt” a Museum animal, education program, veterinary care, or conservation program, through direct donations.
For additional information, visit the Living Otter Ball website. The VLM’s goal is to raise $200,000. Proceeds from the challenge will benefit the Museum’s award-winning education and conversation program, animal care and welfare, and efforts to promote biodiversity and connectivity with nature.
