On Monday, June 18th, Alex and Ani’s Dee Fraser, Emily McKenna, Molly Fogarty and Janelle McGovern visited the Roger Williams Zoo to feed the giraffes and meet with Andrea Rollin to discuss Alex and Ani’s contribution to Zoobilee on June 30th. Why did they go to feed the giraffes? How often can you say you got up close and personal with a giraffe, so close you could touch it (even if you weren’t allowed to pet them)?

It truly was a great experience to interact with these animals and learn how the keepers maintain their health to get them to just over 2,000 lbs!!!!!!

If you are ever interested in feeding the giraffes, feeding times are at 2:00pm daily, April 1st through Labor Day, and then weekends through October. Tickets are $20 in addition to Zoo admission. They can be purchased at the main admission gate when you first enter the Zoo, starting at 9am.

As for the business portion of this fun trip, Alex and Ani is a sponsor for for the Zoo’s grand event, Zoobilee!

For $50 you will receive an exclusive animal themed bangle provided by Alex & Ani and be entered into a raffle to win an Apple iPad2. Remember, this will be your only chance to get these animal bangles and they will not be available anywhere else!

Entries are limited to 100 so get there early for your chance to be the lucky winner!  With odds like that, how can you resist?

Get your bangle and tickets while supplies last in the Upper Zoo, just outside the Dessert Center.  The lucky winner will be announced at 9:30 p.m. under the Entertainment Tent.

Alex and Ani is a proud sponsor of the Zoobilee and we look forward to seeing you there!
