Sharky Bar will be hosting a fundraiser Saturday, November 13, 7pm-late, to raise money for wildlife rescue and care for tigers and elephants at Phnom Tamao Wildlife Rescue Center (PTWRC).

The event theme is “Welcome to the Jungle” and will feature The Cambodian Space Project and a special guest band. There will be a raffle and auction with incredible prizes, including a one-year family membership at the Cambodian Country Club, a PADI diving certification course, weekend stays for 2 at the Independence Hotel in Sihanoukville and Sokha Angkor Hotel in Siem Reap, a roundtrip ticket to Singapore on Jetstar Airways, gift cards to adidas, dinners and cocktails, luxurious spa goodies, gym passes, photography tours, bus tickets, and so much more! Raffle tickets are $1 each, and for every $5 you spend you will get a free beer. Buy $15 worth of tickets get you 3 free beers and a $25 gift card to adidas! There will be a short presentation by our Wildlife Rescue Director, Nick Marx, and t-shirts and paintings by Lucky, one of the female elephants at the rescue center, for sale. All proceeds go directly to the rescue and care of Cambodia’s endangered wildlife at Phnom Tamao Wildlife Rescue Center.

The rescue center is home to over 1,200 wild animals, all of whom were rescued from the illegal wildlife trade, including tigers, elephants, crocodiles, gibbons, bears, and so many more. Wildlife Alliance maintains a 'Care for Rescued Wildlife' project at PTWRC and provides financial and technical support for the care, food, and rehabilitation of wildlife victimized by the trade. Every day new animals come in and that increases the cost for food substantially—food for tigers and elephants alone costs $7,000 per month. As a result of our ten years of hard work, Wildlife Alliance has rescued over 40,000 live wild animals.

Our aim is to partner with the local community here to protect and preserve Cambodia's unique natural heritage together, increase awareness of the illegal wildlife trade, and let people know that what they can do to help stop this cruel trade. We have received incredible support and prizes from local businesses and we are really looking forward to this event as it will be good music, good fun, all for a good cause!
